This recipe is for bulk processing of large amounts of seasonal apples. We usually process over 200 pounds of apples from our garden. Some apples are dehydrated and some frozen. Adding pie spice before freezing can save time during the winter months.
6-8 organic cinnamon sticks
1-2 organic whole nutmeg
2T organic whole allspice
2T organic cane sugar (optional)
Spices are best freshly ground, if possible. Grind all the spice in a spice grinder. Grind in a number of loads, if necessary. You will need about two heaping tablespoons of Apple Pie Mix for each freezer bag of sliced apples. Double or triple this recipe depending on how many apples need processing.
Clean and slice the apples. In a large bowl, mix the Apple Pie Mix with the apples and pour the spiced apple mixture into a freezer bag. Fill the bag about 2/3 full. Alternatively, fill each bag with enough apples and spice for one pie. These frozen, spiced apples can be used for any recipe needing apples during the winter.
