Apple Pie In a Jar
28 cups sliced, peeled apples
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cornstarch
10 cups water (see note below)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Pack apple slices tightly in quart jars. Make a syrup from sugar, cornstarch,
cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and water. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Add
lemon juice, seal and process jars in water bath 20 minutes. Yield 7 quarts.
Note: You can also dry pack the apple pie filling; the juices from the apple
will be all you need during the canning process.
