Apple Filling

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 36


3 cups peeled, cored, and chopped apples
enough water to cover
1 cup apple juice
1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia extract
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch or 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder or quick tapioca
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


• Place 1 cup of the apples in a medium-size saucepan. Cover with water and cook over medium heat.
• While the apples are cooking, process the other 2 cups of apples in a blender with the rest of the ingredients. If using quick tapioca let the blended ingredients sit for 15 minutes without heat.
• When the water is nearly gone in the pan add the blender mix. Bring to a boil then cook on low for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and the apple pieces are tender. If using quick tapioca bring to a full boil and cook until the tapioca turns clear and the apple pieces are tender.
• This sauce gets much thicker upon cooling. It is excellent served warm in crepes and turnovers or on pancakes.

NOTE: If the apples are a softer variety, the cooking time may be reduced. The apple pieces should be tender not mushy. If the apple pieces are tender and there is still a lot of water left in the pan, discard some before adding the blender contents.

VARIATION: This recipe also works great with pears.
