Freezer apple pie filling

I received some apples that were given to me by a neighbor who got them from her father’s apple trees. She gave me an entire large rubber maid container full. I’ve made dried apples & a lot of freezer apple pie filling

The process of making apple pie filling was much easier then I had anticipated. I borrowed an apple corer/peeler from a friend and spent 30 minutes coring enough apples for 32 cups! I doubled my recipe but here is a single batch recipe:


Freezer apple pie filling
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5 batches
Defrost the apple pie filling you have made and include it in cobbler, apple crisp, apple pie or crepes.
  • 18 cups thinly sliced apples (any kind will do)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4½ c. white sugar
  • 1 c. corn starch
  • 3 tsp. ground cinnamon (or apple pie spice)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 10 c. water
  1. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice to prevent apples from browning and set aside. Pour water into a large stock pot over medium heat. Combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Add to water, stir well and bring to a boil STIRRING CONSTANTLY. Boil for 2 minutes
  2. Add apples and return to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until apples are tender, approx 10 minutes. Cool for 30 to 45 minutes
  3. Ladle into freezer containers or freezer bags (I use one gallon size) Cool at room temperature no longer than 1½ hours.
  4. Seal and freeze. Can be stored up to 12 months.

the apple pie sauce will thicken the longer you cook it and let it cool. I always label my freezer bags so I know how long my items have been in the freezer and what is in the bags.

I’ll post a delicious recipe for Apple Crisp that is super easy to make! Fall is the perfect time to preserve all those apples!
