Servings: 3 jars

Ingredients

  • 9 cups (1150g) diced apple (gala, granny smith)
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 ½ cups (260mL) water
  • ¼ cup (32g) cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp (45Gg) sugar (brown or white)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg (optional)

Instructions

  • Add the diced apple to a slow cooker, and toss with the lemon juice.
  • Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a medium pot until smooth and the cornstarch has completely dissolved. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5-8 minutes or until the mixture starts to thicken and has reduced by a third. Pour the mixture over the apples, and toss until all of the apples are coated.
  • Cover the slow cooker with the lid, and cook the apples on HIGH heat for 1 1/2-2 hours, gently stirring after every hour, or until the apples are extremely tender. Cool completely to room temperature in the slow cooker before transferring to airtight containers and refrigerating.

Hi Gemma, after this is cooked how long do I cook it in the oven in an un baked pie crust that I’m making from your recipe?

I plan on making this for Thanksgiving. Can you tell me how many apples for one pie? You state 9 cups, but wasn’t sure how many apples to buy. Also do you suggest mixing up the apples? Granny Smith and Gala?

Hi Gemma,
This recipe sounds great! I do not have a slow cooker…can I make this apple pie filling on my stove top? If so, could you please provide me with directions. Should I let this filling cool down to room temperature before putting into a pan to bake? How do you think a crumb topping would be on this apple pie filling?
Best,
Carol

I would like to try this, but first I have a question. In the video it shows you placing everything into the crock pot. The recipe says to cook some ingredients on the stove and then add to the crock pot. Would you clarify please? Thank you. Connie

Hi Gemma, I’m using bramley apples and wanting to use up some blackberries I have so I thought I’d make a crumble. Any advice on ratio of apple to bb’s and how much extra sugar you would normally use for a bramley apple in your pie filling?
