Apple pie filling

4 1/2 c sugar
1 c corn starch
1-2 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg (optional)
1 t salt
10 c water
30 or so apples
3 T lemon juice
yellow food coloring

Mix all ingredients together (except the apples) well. Cook over med. heat until it thickens, let cool. Then add 3 T lemon juice and a few drops of yellow food coloring for a pretty color.

Peel, core and slice apples. Pack with filling into quart jars. It's easiest if you put a little sauce and then some apples the then more sauce etc. Cover with new lids and rings. Process in steam canner for 20 min.

Makes 7 quarts
