Can them into apple pie filling!
A friend had canned some apple pie filling with apples from a tree in her yard and I thought that would be fun to try. Cavan and I cored and sliced up the bags of apples and shoved them into pint jars. Then we made a syrup out of water, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cornstarch. Next sealed it all into jars and then a hot water bath. Oy they looked so good!
Tonight I tried my first baking with them. And now an admission.... I don't know how to make pie crusts. Yep, hanging my head in shame over here since my mother makes amazing pie crust. So what do you do with a jar of apple pie filling instead?
