Directions

  1. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stock pot. Fill pot with hot water. Sterilize 7 1-quart canning jars, 7 lids, and 7 rings by placing on rack, jars upright. Bring water to a boil. Boil 10 minutes. Remove with a holder and allow jars to air-dry. Save water for processing apples.
  2. Combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and water in a large saucepan. Place over high heat and cook until thick and bubbly, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
  3. Tightly pack apples into sterilized jars. Slowly pour syrup over apples, covering them completely. Gently tap jars on countertop to allow air bubbles to rise. Screw lids on jars.
  4. Carefully lower jars into pot using a holder. Leave a 2 inch space between jars. Add more boiling water if necessary, until tops of jars are covered by 2 inches of water. Bring water to a full boil, then cover and process for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove jars from pot and place on cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press top of each lid with finger, ensuring that seal is tight (lid doesn't move up or down at all). Sealed jars can be stored for up to a year.

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.

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!!!
