Delicious apple pie filling for quick and easy pies all year long.
Servings: 7 quarts
apples, about 6 quarts (peeled and sliced)
2 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup clearjel, regular – not instant
2 Tbsp. vinegar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
5 cups water
5 cups apple juice
Mix sugar, brown sugar, clearjel, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in a bowl. Put vinegar, apple juice and water in a large pot on medium heat. As liquid begins to warm, pour sugar mixture in stirring WELL to get the clearjel dissolved. Heat mixture until bubbly, thick and hot. Pack apples into hot jars tightly.
Ladle the hot filling into the jars of apples. Using a wooden or plastic utensil, poke around in your apples to release the air bubbles and to help the filling get down to the bottom and in between all the apples. Finish filling each jar with additional filling leaving 3/4-inch head space. Adjust hot lid and bands and process in boiling water bath for 20 minutes.
