I have spent the last few days canning apple pie filling and apple sauce. I had always wondered how apple pie filling in the grocery store was made. I never could figure out how the filling part got its consistency. Well, now I know the rest of the story. The recipe I used called for a thickener known as Clear Jell. I had never heard of it, and I had no idea where to locate it. TnFarmGirl told me it would be sold at our local Mennonite Store. So I made a trip and bought me some Clear Jell. That is the secret ingredient in pie filling! The Apple Pie Filling was easy to make, but it did take some time to peel and slice all of the apples. I have several recipes calling for apple pie filling so I wanted to have some homemade. I have recently found several bread recipes made with apple pie filling so I will give them a try. I think they will have to be good!
