Apple Pie In A Jar

Apple Pie In a Jar

28 cups sliced, peeled apples
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cornstarch
10 cups water (see note below)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons 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. Yield 7 quarts.

Note: You can also dry pack the apple pie filling; the juices from the apple will be all you need during the canning process.
