9 cups baking apples (I use what I have for apples), peeled, cored & sliced
1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
5 cups water
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg


  1. Toss apples with lemon juice and set aside.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a Dutch oven.
  3. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add apples and return to boil.
  5. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until apples are tender (6-10 minutes).
  6. Cool for 30 minutes.
  7. Then ladle into freezer containers or bake in pies. Makes enough for two 9 inch pies.

Alternatively, you can cook in the crockpot on low for 4 hours or until apples are tender.
