Snitz for Pie

Submitted by Rachel Miller

3/4 bushel apples

12 cups white sugar

4 tablespoons cinnamon

2 tablespoons allspice

2 teaspoons salt

5 heaping tablespoons flour

Peel apples and put through grinder. Let stand overnight, stirring a few times so all get nice and brown

The next morn, add sugar, spices and salt. Mix well.

Pour flour warmed with a little water over apples and stir well.

Put apple mix in jars and cold pack 1 hour. 

This states like snitz pie filling, but you don’t have the dried apples to soak, etc. The apple mix should fill 13 quarts.

To use for a pie, roll pie crust, sugar apple mix to taste and put a couple tablespoons of the apple mix on crust and fold the crust over. Crimp these  “half-moon”  pies and bake.
