Pie in the sky (part one)

One of the things I sell in my Etsy shop is canned apple pie filling. Today I was approached by a woman who wanted to know if I would make an all organic batch. I enthusiastically said yes, rewrote my description on my listing, and gathered ingredients.

Spices turned out to be the most expensive investment:

But sugar and apples were surprisingly affordable:

All in all, this batch should make four jars of filling and I would have to sell all four jars to make any profit, but I think getting return customers and good feedback is worth the extra effort. Meanwhile, I’ll have delicious pie filling on hand if nothing else.

Part two will show the cooking and canning process!

Soap, bath and beauty, jams and jellies, and unique upcycled gifts. That's what I make and talk about here. A lot.
