Apple Pie Filling

15 apples, peeled, sliced (I used jonathon apples this time)
2 T lemon juice
Water - ice cold

2-4 cups sugar, white granulated
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4-1/2 t cloves
1/4 t salt
5 cups water


Toss apples with lemon juice and ice cold water in a large bowl.

Combine sugar, cornstarch, spices, salt, and water to a large pan on stove.  Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add apples and return to boil.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer 5-10 minutes until apples are tender.  Cool for 1/2 hour.

Freeze extra filling for pies during holiday season or whenever you have a hankering for some fresh apple pie.
