WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THOSE APPLES!!

HAPPY FALL!! This is truly the best time of year -- the foliage is vibrantly beautiful and the harvest is bountiful. What a blessed season!

We have been taking orders for the most amazing apples, grown at the base of the Monroe mountain and I promised to share some of my favorite recipes with those who are ordering. I decided to share with everyone! (If you live near Manti, Utah and want to order and pick up, let me know asap:)

This apple pie filling is the BEST!! We use it for dutch oven cobblers, apple pie and I open a bottle or two to serve with pork roast dinner. YUM!! Enjoy:):)

                          APPLE PIE FILLING

 SYRUP: 
 4 1/2 cups sugar                                3 Tbsp. lemon juice
 1/4 tsp. nutmeg                                  2 tsp. cinnamon
 1 cup cornstarch                                3 drops yellow food coloring
 1 tsp salt 

 Whisk together sugar, cornstarch & spices in a nice size pan. Stir in 10 cups 
 water & cook, stirring until thick and bubbly. Add lemon & coloring.
 Pack peeled, sliced apples into clean, sterilized jars leaving 1" head space.
 Carefully fill with syrup. (Use a spatula to distribute syrup.) Clean top of bottle
 well before putting lid on or they won't seal.
 Water bath 15 minutes pints - 20 minutes quarts.
This recipe makes 7 quarts so adjust as needed. If you don't want to bottle the filling, reduce the recipe and just make a couple pies.
 *Best when used within 1 year*

  For Pie:)
  Prepare 8-9" crust. Put your yummy pie filling in and adjust top. Cut slits and
  Bake @ 400 for 50 mins.
