Apples: Take Two!

Behold jars of green apple goodness…20140706-153312-55992321.jpgI’ve been cleaning out the deep freeze to both use up old supplies and make room for frozen casseroles for my post-baby haze. I found about 10 lbs of peeled, cored, and frozen green apples from my tree last summer. I cooked half of them down into apple juice and made apple jelly (front jars). The other half I put into jars and added this pie filling recipe (rear jars). 

I’ve tried the jelly and it’s a very light delicate jelly. I think the flavor would have been enhanced by leaving the skin on the apples but alas I did not have that foresight last summer. I shall remedy that this summer with the new crop. The pie filling remains to be tested. I have some summer BBQs on my schedule so now I can take fresh pie!

What is your favorite summer treat?
