* You may prepare your apple pie filling from scratch. Simply select 3 or 4 firm,
crisp, tart apples. Wash, peel and core the apples. Toss the fruit into a saucepan
as you slice the apples, making sure to add a 1/2 tablespoon sprinkling of lemon
juice as you go, to keep the fruit from browning. Add 1 cup granulated sugar, 3
tablespoons cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch of salt and a dash of nutmeg
to the fruit. Pour on 1 1/2 cups water and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring
frequently. Reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, and you have apple pie filling
