HOW TO Make and Preserve Apple Pie Filling

FREE 2017 Ultimate Homestead Insiders Guide–

This video is about how to make Apple Pie Filling. This is my second batch. I didn’t make a video on my first batch as I didn’t know how it was going to turn out, but the pie filling is to die for! And this recipe is quite easy to make. I will be giving these out for Christmas Presents this year 😉

4 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons salt
10 cups water
3 tablespoons lemon juice
6 pounds apples

In a large pan, mix sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add salt and water and mix well. Bring to a boil and cook until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and food coloring.

Sterilize canning jars, lids and rings by boiling them in a large pot of water, I like to keep them warm by putting them into a preheated oven at 220 degrees, this also keeps it sterile.

Peel, core, and slice apples. Pack the sliced apples into hot canning jars, leaving a 1/2 inch headspace.

Fill jars with hot syrup, and gently remove air bubbles with a knife.

Put lids on and process in a water bath canner for 20 minutes.

Here are the links to the items I purchased to make these apple pie fillings and other canning items.

This has to be the best investment I made. Love this and would recommend if you do not have a set. Norpro Canning Essentials Boxed Set, 6 Piece Set

Here is a link to my pressure canner that I purchased. I would recommend this one because I have been using this particular one for a few months now and love it. Pressure Canner:
