Apple Crisp

I have recently canned a MILLION apples. Everything from applesauce to apple rings and apple pie filling. My favorite had to be the apple pie filling because I use it to make apple crisp. I'll give the recipe for the pie filling and you can "jar" it or you might be able to figure out how to just make enough for one apple crisp.

7 qts peeled, cored, and sliced apples
4 1/2 c sugar OR 3 1/2 c white sugar 1c brown sugar (we used the option with the brown sugar)
1 c cornstarch
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
10 c water
3 Tbs lemon juice

Make syrup, combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and water, add lemon juice. Cook syrup until thick. Pour a little syrup int eh bottom of the jars. Fill jars with apples and really smoosh them in, leaving 1 in head space. Fill remaining space with syrup taking care to get all the bubbles out. Place lids and rings on. Process for 40 minutes in hot water. Let the jars sit in the bath for a while before you move them so they can seal properly.
*Note: Processing time is for 5000 ft. Please adjust to your altitude.

Apple Crisp

1 jar apple pie filling
8 graham crackers crushed (the squares, not the big ones)
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c oats (not instant)
1/2 c flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 stick butter

Place apples in a baking dish. Combine all remaining ingredients until coarse in texture and butter is evenly distributed. Sprinkle over the apples and bake at 350 for 30 mins.

Mary I must admit I've been forgetting to look at Steve's lunch. Maybe its cause I've been eating at my desk so I haven't seen Steve's actual lunches. I just caught up on all the posts I've missed and I feel inspired to cook! So many of these things sound awesome. Keep it up :)
P.S. While I was reading your posts I'd comment out loud how good something would sound and Steve would say every time ya that was good. I think it made him hungry...
