Recipe Notes

  • I prefer to use sliced apples in chunk sizes because if you ever use a store bought apple pie filling then you might have noticed that the size of the apples or quite large in size. You can chop them too but I prefer to make it chunk size pieces so it gives comfort to eat.
  • What I like most about the homemade apple pie filling at home is that we are free to use and adjust spices and herbs as per our taste. This way you do a lot of variations and have a different taste every time.
  • Apple plays a major role while making the pie filling recipe. You can either use multiple apple types for the same pie filling or try out one that fits for the pie filling. For me, I like to use Granny Smith or sometimes Fuji.
  • There are lots of people that don’t use cornstarch while making the apple pie filling but always go with that is easy for you to cook and gives a good taste for pie filling.
  • It is very necessary to transfer the jar filled with apple pie mixture into a refrigerator after it comes to room temperature so it let the mixture thicken properly. This enhances a great flavor to the dish.
