Apple Pie Filling

Canned Apple Pie Filling Orchard Road Jars

Gather your canning supplies

Ingredients

  • apples – enough for 6 quarts sliced
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 1 cup clear jel
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 10 cups water
  • 3T lemon Juice

Canning Procedure

Peel, core and slice your apples. This is where the apple, peeler, corer, slicer may come in handy. It will cut your prep time in half. However keep in mind that it does slice your apples very thin.  I like thicker slices when I am canning apple pie filling.

  • For canning apples pie filling or other sliced apple canning, I’ve always recommend using an apple peeler corer slicer. But I have noticed that with the slices so thin the apples tend to get very soft after processing. You may want your pieces to be a bit thicker than the slicer will make. I still highly recommend the slicer. It is an incredible time saver, but using a knife the old fashioned way may just suit your needs better.
  • If you use an apple peeler, see instructions on that came with it. If you do not have one just prepare your apples with a knife.

If you will raw pack your jars (see below) keep your peeled sliced apples in a light syrup or water with some ascorbic acid. (Also called – Fresh Fruit Preserver from Mrs. Wages). This will keep your apples from browning while you make your syrup. In this image the apples in the foreground are in a sugar syrup.  Except the top I had more apples than syrup but it is ok because I’ll get them in the clear jel asap.

To make a light syrup simply heat water and sugar in a sauce pan until sugar dissolves – 2 cups sugar to 1-quart water

Make your thickener or syrup

To make your thickener or syrup. Combine sugar, clear jel, cinnamon, lemon juice and nutmeg.

Stir into 10 cups water in a large stock pot. Heat and stir until thickened and bubbly.

If you use Clear Jel be sure you purchase the non-instant or regular type. Click here for more information. Click here for more information on Clear Jel

If you have not used clear jel…. I HIGHLY recommend it.

I used to list the directions for flour and or cornstarch as your thickener… but it is not recommended and Clear Jel is so much better.

Raw Pack or Hot Pack?

There are two ways to fill your jars. Raw or Cold Pack and Hot Pack.  I recommend a hot pack.  Read through both methods below and decide what you think will work best for you.

Raw Pack Apple Pie Filling

Peel and slice enough apples for one jar at a time. Fill the jars with the apples and then pour hot syrup over the apples.

This can be tricky if your syrup thickened a lot. You will need to be sure and use a thin spatula to remove air bubbles and be sure the syrup fills the jar. If it has thickened a lot it will not want to flow down between the apples very well.

Leave a 1 inch head space. Wipe the rims clean, remove any air bubbles and place your lids.

Hot Pack Apple Pie Filling

Combine apples and clear jel

Fill jars and top off with extra syrup if needed.

When I am canning apple pie filling I prefer to hot pack. A hot pack seems easier and less messy, sticky.

Peel core and slice apples into a large pot with hot water. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. Drain.

Gently combine apples and thickened syrup.

Have you ever been canning apple pie filling and ended up short on fruit with lots of syrup left over? In order to avoid this, add most of your syrup to the apples, but don’t just dump it all in. Reserve some and gently stir, adding more as needed. This way you will use only as much as needed to cover the apples.

You will have a nice filling with mostly apples and not too much thickened syrup. If needed you can always top off your jars with the extra syrup.

Fill jars with filling, remove air bubbles. Leave a 1 inch head space.

Processing

Wipe the rims clean, remove any air bubbles and place your lids. Process apple pie filling in quart jars for 25 minutes. For more details on processing follow water bath canning instructions.
If you’d like to enjoy more Apple options in your pantry, try your hand at these: Chunky Spiced Applesauce (with no added sugar!)
Crockpot Apple Butter (with and without the peels).

    Have you tried the Orchard Road lids? I bought a BUNCH of them from Fillmore this summer. They did great in the hot water bath but every time I tried using them in a pressure canner, they buckled. EVERY ONE – EVERY TIME. I pressure can hundreds of jars a year & those and WalMart’s generic ones are the only ones that have ever buckled….

    • Posted October 12, 2016 at 9:13 pm | Permalink

      Hi Bonnie, We haven’t heard of other issues, but it’s quite possible that if the lid is a little more flexible, the finger-tightening factor may need to be dialed back a little. The buckling is almost always a result of venting being inhibited. I’d encourage you to pass your findings along to the manufacturer, as I know they’d want to have your feedback!

    My mom passed away a few years back and I was lucky enough to get all of her canning supplies. I had never canned anything until I got her pots & supplies. I started watching & reading Simply Canning that I found on line. It has been one of the most fun things to learn and now I think of my mom every time I can something. Thanks so much for all the great ideas on not just canning but gardening as well.
    The only thing that got lost when I got my moms canning things was the container to put the glass gars into so I have been doing the small towel in bottom and only doing 3 at a time so they don’t touch. Works, I have been on the look out for the proper container for the glass.

    We have our own apple trees and love to make applesauce out of the apples!

    I’ve done applesauce, apple jelly and apple butter. I’m going to try your apple pie filling. We love turnovers and this will make them fast, easy and delicious!

    If only apples lasted long enough with our 5 kids! I’d love to be able to dry some apples to put up and to make applesauce and apple pie filling.

    Apples don’t last too long around here mainly because we are a applesauce family.

    I dehydrate and I freeze what apples I don’t eat fresh 🙂

    Apple Butter, Applesauce, and Apple Tarts – plus any of the recipes that brings me back to those special moments in time with my grandmother sharing with me, her how-to’s on how to can and preserve foods – I so loved her stories – and here I am now running an apothecary business – she’d love it!

    I’ve recently been mixing up apple pie filling (apples, brown sugar, spices, and a little butter), then vacuum sealing and freezing. Would love to try canning!

    In your photo of the pie filling, the photos show the filling all the way up to the top of the jar. Do you really do that when canning pie filling?

    • Posted October 21, 2016 at 7:32 pm | Permalink

      Hello Clare, This photo was taken after the jars were removed from the canner. Most Apple Pie Filling Recipes call for 1 inch of headspace, which I stuck with when filling these. In previous batches, I’ve had to allow more than 1 inch in order to not risk overflow due to the amount of expansion which can vary depending on the apples.

    I prep my apples and freeze them recipe ready. I haven’t canned in awhile but I want to get back to the basics of preserving my harvest!

    I’m new to preserving apples. I just eat them. But I’m looking for good ideas and I like what I see here.

    My favorite way to preserve apples is to dehydrate them or make applesauce. I’ve made apple pie filling but I end up with too much of the non-apple parts and my family just isn’t into that. So apple slices and applesauce are my go-to methods!

    Since my family is small, I sometimes like to can apple pie fillings in pint jars for tartlets.

    I love to preserve my apples as apple butter with cinnamon. Winter breakfasts are brightened with the addition of home preserved apple butter to top oatmeal, toasts, pancakes, french toast and yogurt.

    I love canning apple pie filling and using it for apple crisp. It is a quick and easy dessert that sometimes gets used for breakfast, too.

    I love making apple pie filling. I can control the sugar content and my kids will eat it over pancakes on a cold midwest morning!
