Homemade apple pie filling makes fall pie baking a snap! Impress your friends and family with a freshly baked pie without all the fuss.
This year I have really caught the canning bug. I can’t stop, I won’t stop. I intend to enjoy the freshness of summer long into the dreariness of winter.
When my fellow canning compatriot (and a huge reason for my new obsession) Kelly of Mountain Mama Cooks and I planned another day of preserving, we’d already covered jam, pickles, peaches, and tomatoes. We wanted to try something new and fun.
Kelley suggested an apple pie filling and I eagerly agreed. Peeling and slicing the apples was a little tedious (especially since we made a large batch), but otherwise the entire process of making the pie filling was very simple.
And this last weekend when I hosted a dinner party, this apple pie filling was my saving grace. I was able to make some pie crust ahead of time, so all I had to do the day of was roll it out, open a jar of filling and pour it in. It baked up beautifully and no one was the wiser!
Not interested in baking a pie? Try this apple pie filling on top of ice cream, pancakes, oatmeal, etc.
