I was delighted to find this recipe last Christmas as I give gifts in a jar to people with whom my husband works. This was a variation on the "cookies in a jar" theme. I have used it since as just a side dish, cutting down on the cornstarch. It freezes well and is a wonderful treat. Thank you.
Having an apple tree in our yard I am always looking for ways to preserve/use the apples up. I made one batch (6 jars) of this recipe in fall of 2000. I wasn't too sure at first because over time the liquid and apples separated but I made apple pies with it and it was just great. Sure cut down the time in making apple pie from scratch and at the same time was far superior to canned apple pie filling. The ony change I will make this year is to change the spices to agree with my personal taste as I found this to be a little lacking in flavour.
Awesome !! This is so good. Good over ice cream pancakes waffles or french toast. This is so good to just eat out of the Jar.. Add to your pancake batter very good we eat them out camping ..
I love this recipe! It is very easy and sooooo tasty. My sister and I made 36 jars yesterday for christmas gifts, and we are already planning on doing it again next year.
Great recipe..great jar idea! LOVE IT!!!
Good, see other review for apple pie filling. I also used tapioca or cornstarch as thickener too. I think I liked the cornstarch the best, no tell-tale taste. 11/08
Thanks so much for this recipe. The filling makes the easiest pies and apple crips. Canned the filling on the weekend when I had time. All you have to do is whip up a crust or crumb topping and bake. AWESOME!!!
I made this last summer with Rambo Apples. Gave it as gifts for Christmas 2006. Everybody loved it!
