Good Fillings... Candy Apple Pie Filling

Candy Apple Pie Filling 
Found on Pinterest

3-1/2 cups apples

1-1/4 cup spiced apple cider

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup red hot cinnamon candies

1/4 cup Clear Jel

2 T. bottled lemon juice

For fresh apples, place all into 1 gallon of boiling water and boil one minute when it comes back to a boil. Drain but keep fruit covered in a bowl.

In a stockpot, mix the apple cider and red hots and heat on medium till the candies completely dissolve. Pour into a bowl.

Put the brown sugar and Clearjel into the pot and add the apple cider/candy mixture, stir to mix well. Bring to a boil and using a whisk, cook until thick and bubbly, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat. Add the lemon juice. Fold apples into mixture.

Pack the apples into hot, sterilized quart size or two pint canning jars. Best way to fill is in layers. Using the funnel ladle one large scoop and using the spatula press the apples down in the jar to remove the bubbles. Continue filling using this technique so that you work your way up the jar with as little air bubbles as possible.

Fill the jars and because of expansion use 2" headspace. Wipe the rims and place the hot lid/rings on the jars.

Process in a water bath canner for 25 minutes for both pints and quart jars.


  1. Hi!

    Just recently found your site, liking all the canning recipes. You may want to review older blog posts from time to time as idiots have added spam and sex site posts in the comments, things I am sure you would not want on your lovely, wholesome site. The one I specifically happened across was the post about canning potatoes; about halfway down the comments page there's some random chats about completely off-topic stuff, and someone's link to their own sex chat page. :(
