I got my pie apples the day after we processed the pears. I like pears and apples together in pies and since I'm on a Perma Flo pie filling kick this year, I decided it would be awesome if I took some of those now soft pears and added some firmer apples to make yet another type of Perma Flo pie filling to can.
Mmm-hmm! This is what I did for enough pie filling for 8 pies.
Apple Pear Pie Filling
- 1 gallon processed pears with the water they were cooked in
- 1 gallon sliced apples - we washed and cored them but didn't bother to peel them.
- 1 1/2 cups Perma Flo
- 4 cups sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp nutmeg
- sprinkle of cloves [optional]
We put it into quart jars and processed them for 30 minutes. Yield: 8 quarts
This filling is fantastic with waffles or popovers and vanilla yogurt!
