    It's that time of year and once again I'm drowning in apples. I still have 3 gallons of applesauce left from last year but I'm doubling that to make sure I don't run out. I'm going to try apple butter again and I'll have the dehydrator running full time for the next few weeks.

    I'm now thinking I'd like to try making and canning pie filling. I'm sure there are plenty of recipes out there on the net, but I would prefer something from some of the folks I know and trust. Would anyone like to help me out? :)

    NaeKid YourAdministrator, eh?

    I make the whole-pie ... and normally bake it and when I make lots of pie, I will freeze the "spares". I have heard that I could also make the pie, but, not bake it .. throw it in the freezer "raw" and when I want a fresh-pie in January, I can pull it out, thaw it, and then bake-like-normal for a great pie ...

    Wildmist took a large bag of apples that my dad brought us and turned a good portion of it into apple-sauce and just did a normal canning-process on it ... and I made pies ... :flower:

    Did you want my pie recipe?

    I can't believe I didn't think to look there first. :eek:

    Right now I'm making apple butter and apple cider. I may try jelly too.
