Yield: 1 Servings
|28 cups||Peeled; sliced, then quartered *tart* apples|
|2 tablespoons||Lemon juice|
|3 drops||Yellow food coloring|
|3 tablespoons||Dehydrated lemon peel|
Make a syrup from sugar, constarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and water. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Add lemon juice mix with apples, pack into jars leaving a good ½ inch at top of jar. Seal and process jars in water bath for 20 minutes. Makes about 7 quarts of filling. After jars are completely cooled, I unscrew the ring and cut large circles of holiday-ish tissue paper, put over the lid, then gently put screw the ring back on.
I then make labels on my computer with cardstock and a Christmas graphic, titled, "Pamela's Apple Pie in a Jar", punch a hole in the top, which I tie with raffia around lids that have the recipe for the crumb topping below: : 1 cup butter
: 1 cup brown sugar
: 1 cup flour
: Process til crumbly.
: Stir in:
: 1 cup oatmeal
Spread on top of filling in a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Top with ice cream or whipped cream while warm.
Note: For my small family, I can filling in pint size jars and bake in a 8x8 pan.
