This is excellent. For us, one batch of syrup made 6 quarts of pie filling. We left the 1/2" of headspace as it said, but the filling expanded & oozed out of the jars. Obviously they didn't seal. We repacked & reprocessed leaving 1" of headspace with great results. As most other reviews on this recipe suggested, we kicked up the spices (1 T + 1t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1/4 t. clove, 1/4 t. allspice). We left out the food coloring. The kitchen smelled fabulous, the jars were beautiful, the taste was delish. We used Jonathans this time, but will try Granny Smith in a few weeks when they're ready at the local orchard. I'm sure we'll be making this recipe again & again.
