Apple Pie Filling - canned

I think I missed apple season, but since I was posting the cobbler topping, thought this should be included. Love this recipe from 2 friends, Alice and Kathy. You can this in quart size jars, then pull out and dump in your pan, add my favorite cobbler topping and you have a yummy warm dessert without much preparation. It is especially good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Apple Pie Filling

4 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup cornstarch
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt

Mix together all ingredients and add 10 cups of water. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Slice tart apples and pack into 6 quart jars. Pour liquid over apples in jars using a knife to release bubbles. Leave 1" of head space. Wipe jar lips clean and process in a water bath (canner) for 20 minutes.

Remove from water and place on a towel to absorb extra water. Wait for ping of seal. Leave out overnight then put away.

I have also used peaches with success.
