Apple Pie Filling
This is a recipe that does not call for clear jel.
4 1/2 cups sugar 1 cup quick cooking tapioca 1 teaspoon salt (optional) 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 10 cups water 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 drops yellow food coloring (optional) 16 cups tart peeled, cored, sliced apples
Stir together the sugar, tapioca, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a medium stockpot. Add the water while stirring, and cook on a medium/high heat until it is thick and bubbly. Then cook for 2 more minutes. Add the apples. and stir. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly, and cook for 1 minute. Remove the apples from the sauce with a slotted spoon and place into hot clean quart jars, leaving a 1/2 inch space at the top. Add sauce to the jars. Seal and hot water bath for 25 minutes. One jar is good for one apple pie recipe.
Cut stems from figs, wash thoroughly, and mash to a pulp with a potato masher. Place figs and sugar into a large pot then add the gelatin. Mix well. Cook over medium heat until mixture starts to bubble. Reduce heat to low and cook about 45 minutes. Stir often to prevent sticking. This recipe can be doubled. The 6 cups of figs will give you about 3 or 4 pints.
