Homemade Apple Pie Filling

Every other year I make this pie filling and can it for use throughout the year. It is excellent for pies, crisps and just as a topping for ice cream. It is a pretty quick recipe if you have a little help with peeling the apples.

Homemade Apple Pie Filling

27 1/2 cup sliced apples
5 1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup Clear Jell A
3 1/2 tsp cinnamin
3 1/2 cups cold water
5 1/4 cups apple juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
7/8 tsp nutmeg

Put all ingredients except apples and lemon juice into a large pot. Cook until it boils, add apples and boil for 1 full minute. Add lemon juice and stir. Fill prepared quart jars and waterbath for 20 minutes.

note*- Clear Jell A can usually be found at kitchen stores. Corn Starch can not be substituted
