Peggi Anne's notes for this recipe:
I use to can several jars of this every year. So easy to just take it out & dump in pie shell & bake. 1 quart will do regular pie. 3 quarts will do 2 deep dish apple pies.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


In large cook pot, combine all ingredients except the apples. *I like using clear jel for pies instead of corn starch. It doesn't clump up like corn starch. Stays smoother.
Cook until mixture thickens, stirring constantly.
Add the apples & continue cooking to boiling. Simmer 5 minutes.
Pack in hot sterilized jars. Seal. Process in hot bath for 30 minutes.
