Nancy in FL..|..Category: Pie


  • Apple Pie in a Jar
  • 28 cups sliced, peeled apples
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 & 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 10 cups water (see note below)
  • 2 tsps cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsps 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. Note: You can also dry pack the apple pie filling; the juices from the apple will be all you need during the canning process. These are so handy to have in your pantry. Open a jar -- pour into pie shell and bake -- it is homemade goodness.
