No Sugar Added Apple Pie Filling

Apple Pie Filling, or Dip, or just eat it, Guilt Free!!

I don't know about you but fruit is a hot commodity in this house, the problem is that the "flavor of the month" changes so if I stock up on apples, inevitably bananas are the new favorite. So there are times, more frequent than I'd like to admit, that we have a basket of rotting fruit that none will touch. Now I think by now you all know how I hate wasting things, so I decided to take the soft apples and hardening oranges sitting in the basket today and make something.

I decided on apple pie filling. I was going to make apple sauce but didn't want it to share the same fate as its raw counterparts. I really liked the idea of sugar free but I'm all about big flavors.

4-5 Apples
Juice of 2 oranges
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp powdered cloves
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp cherry extract
2 Tbsp butter (optional)

I juiced the oranges and threw it in the pot. Then I chopped the apples and threw them in too. I put the pot on low to simmer for a while as I put all the ingredients in.

Then I added the nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, almond extract, vanilla, and cherry extract.

Let it simmer for about an hour, take it off the heat and into the freezer it will go. All set for the next pie I need to make.

Woo hoo! A done, and I'm ready to entertain with fresh pie next time someone comes over.
