Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine apples and sugar in a large saucepan. Mix together, then let stand until juice starts to be released from apples. Place over medium-high heat and stir frequently until mixture comes to a boil. Boil hard 1 minute, continuing to stir frequently.

  • Mix tapioca, cinnamon, and lemon juice into apples. Boil hard for 1 minute more, continuing to stir. Pack mixture into a sterilized quart jar, a spoonful at a time, ensuring that there are no air bubbles in mixture. Secure sterilized lid.

  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large stock pot and fill halfway with boiling water. Carefully lower jar into pot using a holder. If processing more than one jar, leave a 2 inch space between jars. Add more boiling water if necessary, until tops of jars are covered by 2 inches of water. Bring water to a full boil, then cover and process for 30 minutes.

  • Remove jars from pot and place on cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press top of each lid with finger, ensuring that seal is tight (lid doesn't move up or down at all). Can be stored up to one year.

I was excited I findly found a apple pie filling using tapioca. After using it, I went back to my childhood. My mother used a pie filling just like this. Now I have one for years to come. Read More

Did not like that the tapioca did not melt in the recipe. But it did have the apple pie taste to it. Read More

Simple and tasty with a great texture. I didn't can it but instead cooked it in the pan for a minute or two longer in Step 2 used it immediately and it turned out great. I'll be using this recipe again! Read More

Excellent. I used 8 cups of mixed variety apples and kept the other ingredient amounts the same. Added 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Since not canning I cooked it a couple minutes longer. Used it in AR's Apple Enchilada dessert. Read More

I used way more apples in this recipe and the apples still rose to the top leaving an inch or so of filling on the bottom. I plan on using more apples next time and really stuffing them in there. I also used 2 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie seasoning for the spices and the result was excellent. I got 8 quarts. Overall it is great and I plan on making a few more batches over the next couple of days.

I have to admint to being somewhat dubious about this recipe, I thought the tapioca would not do well. I was proven wrong! The filling set up nicely and the tapioca did not turn into icky chunks like I thought it would. Thank you Karen, I will be doing this again. Read More
