Apple Pie Filling For Canning

This stuff is so good… even when you don’t put it in a pie! This can be made in bulk and canned for later use. I always had a stockpile of this on hand when I was into canning. I really do need to get back into it again soon! I’ve never tried freezing it but it should be ok.

This recipe works well for the Apple Crisp Recipe I have. For a pie simply pour a jar into an unbaked pie shell and top with another unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour.
