  1. Make a syrup from sugar, constarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and water. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Add lemon juice mix with apples, pack into jars leaving a good ½ inch at top of jar. Seal and process jars in water bath for 20 minutes. Makes about 7 quarts of filling. After jars are completely cooled, I unscrew the ring and cut large circles of holiday-ish tissue paper, put over the lid, then gently put screw the ring back on.

  2. I then make labels on my computer with cardstock and a Christmas graphic, titled, "Pamela's Apple Pie in a Jar", punch a hole in the top, which I tie with raffia around lids that have the recipe for the crumb topping below: : 1 cup butter : 1 cup brown sugar : 1 cup flour : Process til crumbly.

  3. : Stir in:

  4. : 1 cup oatmeal Spread on top of filling in a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Top with ice cream or whipped cream while warm.

  5. Note: For my small family, I can filling in pint size jars and bake in a 8x8 pan.
