MMM. . . this sounds good. I have been in a thrifty, homekeeping mode lately and this is right up my alley.

I wanted to let you know that I have been enjoying Mary Jane's Farm Magazine, thanks to your post about it awhile back. Just thought you should know. I would never have found it, otherwise. (Houseblogs.net has been great for lot of finds!)


Oh I'm glad you've tapped into Mary Jane's Farm. I indulged and ordered all the back issues. They ended up coming right before I was struck down with the nasty winter flu so I had many spare hours to pour over them. It was fun! The recipe for pie filling must have lodged somewhere in my brain; when I saw the apples going soft it was the first remedy that sprang to mind.


My Mom and Dad have orchards, and every year we make and freeze apple pie mixes, asian pear pie mixes, grape pie mixes, and anything else we can get our hands on. We haven't tried canning them, but freezing them works great.

Usually, a quart = a normal sized pie.

I am heading out to pick apples today...lots and lots of apples. The last batch I made 40 quarts of Apple Sauce. I have searched for an apple pie filling recipe to can-I think that yours looks the best and I an going to give it a whirl. Thank you!

You have inspired me to adapt this project for my high school level design class.

I thank thee that I am none of the wheels of power but I am one with the living creatures that are crushed by it.
