    Default Apple Pie Filling for the freezer

    I have done some canning in the past but feel safer doing freezer recipes..... I did this one last year and used the filling for pies, tarts, and used on top of pancakes.....


    18 cups sliced peeled baking apples (about 6 lbs.)
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    4-1/2 cups sugar
    1 cup cornstarch
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    10 cups water

    In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice; set aside. In a Dutch oven over
    medium heat, combine sugar. cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
    Add water; bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add apples;
    return to a boil. Reduce heat: cover and simmer until apples are tender,
    about 6-8 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes. Ladle into freezer containers,
    leaving 1/2-in. head space. Cool at room temperature no longer than
    1-1/2 hours. Seal and freeze; store for up to 12 months.

    Yield: 5-1/2 quarts (enough for about five 9 inch pies)
