Canning Apple Pie filling

Another great recipe from Tyece. Make with the Perfect Pie Crust and all you have to do is dump the jar into the crust and you will have a wonderful homemade pie literally in minutes when you have some of these pie fillings on hand!

~24 lbs of apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)
6 cups sugar
3/4 c cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 Tbsp cloves
1 Tbsp nutmeg
cube butter
2.5 qts water + 1 cup more

Combine sugar and cornstarch in a bowl and set aside. Add remaining ingredients except apples to a large saucepan. Then add the sugar mixture and stir until dissolved on low heat and until it thickens. Fill apples to the top of a quart jar, tap it on the counter to help settle and then add in remaining space. Add about a cup of the syrup mixture or until there is an inch of head space left.

Process in a water bath canner for 30 minutes.
