This was good, but I adapted a few things and changed some quantities. I used wide mouth jars for easy filling. I left out the food coloring and the nutmeg. I increased the cinn. to about 3 Tbls. (think about 1 tsp per pie recipe). I used about 6 quarts of apples. (I would say that it is about 40 medium sized apples.) I used clear jel very successfully in place of the corn starch I used about 1 and 1/4 cups. I mixed the sugar, cinn, salt and clear jel together. I heated the water up in a pot on the stove until it was hot but not boiling and then slowly poured the dry mix into the water, whisking as I went. I had no problems with clumps or anything. I filled my jar 1/2 full of apples and then added several ladles full of syrup, I pushed and pressed to get the bubbles out before I added the other apples and the rest of the syrup. Make sure you leave a FULL 1 inch of head space. If you leave any less, you will take your jar out of the water thinking everything went great, and then the oozing will start. In this case, your jar didn't seal and you will have to reprocess in a clean jar with a new band. Overall, the taste is good and I would recommend this to a friend!
