Sounds quite simple, it's a shame not to give it a try.

My 3 grandaughters and I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon making this filling. We had a lot of fun making memories. Your recipe was easy and tasty!!!!!

Sounds like a great idea. Especially since we have 5 buckets of apples waiting to be worked on.

sounds very yummy and easy. does anyone know of a low sugar or sugar-free receipe? i wonder if you used Splenda instead of sugar, if that would work? has anyone tried this?

Last year we made several batches of apple pie filling as gifts. We soaked the sliced apples in water with vitamin C (1 tsp acerbic acid crystals or six 500-milligram tablets crushed in 1 gallon of water) to prevent browning. The cornstarch thickener makes for an opaque or cloudy-looking pie filling. Still tasty but not as attractive. The recipe from our Extension Service used a product called ClearJel, which I found online at King Arthur Flour Co., and the results were beautiful! Everyone loved the jars at Christmas. We'll be making an extra batch or two this year.

If you were to use the products that you metioned, what amounts would you use?

I love recepies that can things. I am always looking for new recepies that I can use during the months when fresh food is not easily available.

Using cornstarch as a thickening agent in any home canning is considered unsafe. There are old recipes floating around, but they are not acceptable according to all the latest research. There are two safe alternatives: ClearGel and ThermaFlo. If you can't find them locally, check the web. They are available.
