I changed a few ingredients; Apple juice for the water, brown sugar for white sugar, only 1/2 cup of cornstarch, and no food coloring. I also brought the mixture to a boil, added apples, and cooked just long enough to soften the apples. I then packed the jars with the apples (gently pressing them allowing more apples per jar) and poured liquid to within 1 inch of the top. I used the same liquid but cooked in batches so the apples have plenty or room to expand. Absolutely perfect. My husband loves cooked apples so I reduced the cornstarch so it wouldn't be so thick as used in pies. I got 9 quarts and 6 pints out of this recipe. I don't know how many apples I used, I picked them from our tree.
