Apple Pie Filling

Apple Pie Filling

On the shelf and ready to go, canned foods are everywhere. Most of the time, we reach for them without thinking. While having food canned or already prepared can save us time, the store bought versions of these items are packed with preservatives, salt and sugar! However, you don’t need fancy equipment, or a day set aside for canning to make some of these short-cut items at home. This quick recipe for Juicy Apple Pie Filling can be thrown together in minutes and is the perfect alternative to store bought apple pie filling. You could easily can this recipe for a longer shelf life, but it will keep well in the fridge for use that week in a sealed mason jar.

Fresh and Juicy Apples

My favorite part about this recipe is how quick and easy it is to make. Chop up 4 Apples and mix in 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice to keep them from turning brown. Melt 1 tablespoon of Butter and mix in 3 tablespoons Water. Pour this over the apples. In a separate bowl combine 2 tablespoons flour, ½ cup Brown Sugar, 1 teaspoon Cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon Nutmeg. Pour the dry ingredients over the apples and mix it all together. Then add in 1 tablespoon of Honey and stir to combine.

Some recipes will cook the filling over the stovetop at this point to soften the apples and thicken the sauce. You could certainly do that with this recipe, but I prefer the crisp taste of the fresh apples and the juicy quality of this pie filling that is lost when you pre-cook it. When baked into a pie, this recipe creates the juiciest apple pie, without creating a soggy crust. It can also be served over ice cream, for a fresh burst of flavor or mixed into yogurt for a sweet treat. The ways to use this delicious filling are limitless. What’s your favorite?
