Anybody else ever freeze pie filling? I’ve never tried it.
Another question: why boil apples, then make a syrup from the liquid that drains off? Why not… boil the apples… in the syrup? then you just boil till the consistency is right. Works for almost any fruit as far as I know. I guess the advantage here would be the apples would stay crisper, but if you’re then baking it in a pie crust… won’t they continue to weep if they aren’t fully cooked anyway?
