First off I made these Bran Muffins. I hope that they will keep me in quick breakfasts for the next couple of weeks. I did make 24 of them, so as long as Harvey does not decide to gobble them up quickly (like as fast as I pull them out of the freezer) we should be okay.
I had gotten some apples from the farmers market and I was all out of my apple pie filling for the winter. So that was next on my list of jobs.
First peel and slice the apples, sprinkle with sugar and let the juices accumulate.
Bring the apples and sugar juice to a boil, boiling for 1 minute. Then add the cinnamon, lemon juice and tapioca. Boil another minute or so.......
Fill your containers. And look out of about 8 lbs of apples I have enough filling for 2 pies or 4 crisps. Guess I will have to go out and look for more apples next week.
Here is the recipe for the Apple Pie Filling
5 cups peeled sliced apples
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp minute tapioca
1/2 tsp cinnamon (I always use a tad more)
1 tsp lemon juice
Combine apples and sugar in large pot. Stir and let stand until juice starts to be released. Stir as you bring it to a boil over medium high heat. Boil hard for about 1 minute.
Mix in remaining ingredients. Boil hard for another minute or so. now you can put this into a quart jar and process it in a water bath for 20 minutes....or take the easier way and put it into containers leaving 1 inch head space and freeze after cooling. The 1 quart is enough for 1 9" pie.
This recipe can be doubled or tripled with no problem what so ever.
Off to visit all of you.
Have a wonderful evening. God bless.
