Apple Pie Filling



  • 3 medium fresh apple(s), Fuji preferred, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg, or to taste
  • 2 Tbsp apricot jam, or jelly


In a non-reactive bowl, combine apples, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon and nutmeg.


Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add apple mixture; cook until slightly softened, stirring occasionally, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in jelly. Serve hot or slightly cooled. Yields about 3 1/3 tablespoons per serving.
