Apple Pie Filling

My parents have an apple orchard, so I am always looking for apple recipes. This is from an Amish cookbook. I have made the whole recipe, but have also cut it in half. I use this pie filling in apple crisp....just need to add a crumb topping and bake!

Apple Pie Filling

7 c sugar
6 t cinnamon
2 c clear jel
4 T lemon juice
3 t salt vanilla (opt)

Heat 7 qt water in an 8 qt pot. Mix all above ingredients together, except clear jel. Stir into boiling water. Bring back to a boil and add clear jell that you have mixed with water(like for gravy) and cook until thickened. Pour this mixture over 16-18 qts of peeled apples.

Put in jars and process 20 minutes in hot water bath. 18 qts
