Homemade Apple Pie Filling is easy to make and can be used in plenty of desserts, like homemade apple pie, and it tastes so much better than the canned version.
Wash, peel and core apples. Chop them into 1-inch chunks.
Place a medium saucepan over medium heat and add water, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, cornstarch, and salt. Stir to combine.
Add the apples, reduce heat from medium to low, cover saucepan with a lid and let the apples simmer for 6-8 minutes, or until apples have softened, but are not mushy. Stir often.
If the filling is too watery for your taste, in a small bowl mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water until fully dissolved and add the slurry to the apple pie filling, simmer for 2 minutes to thicken. Keep in mind that the filling will thicken more once completely cooled, so while it may look a bit watery when hot it will thicken more.
