Apple Pie Filling

I was randomly craving apple pie filling since I'd seen some recipes around pinterest.  Since it was just snowing this weekend, it is TOTALLY apple pie season.  

Because I say so :).

I bought two large bags of granny smith apples and my oldest daughter helped me hack away at those things.  We ended up with 24 cups of apples.

Here's the recipe we used.  It is our creation as we morphed together the ideas we'd seen and changed things according to what we had and our pot size :).  It is gluten-free naturally so makes an easy and fun dessert without bothering with a crust or anything. 

12-24 C apples
3 1/2 C white sugar
1 C corn starch
3 t cinnamon
1 t salt
1/2 t nutmeg
8 C water

Mix together and bring to a boil in a LARGE stockpot or pan.  Let boil until thick.  Then let cool on stove for 30 minutes to an hour.  Then you can put the amounts you want into freezer bags for enjoying later or making into pies or apple crisps.  This made plenty for our family to enjoy last night and three bags for the freezer.
