Don’t want to use the canned “stuff”?

You can make your own filling. In a medium saucepan, combine 2 Tbsp. apple cider, 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, and 1 cinnamon stick. Add 1-2 pounds peeled, cored and chopped (firm) apples. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Taste for sweetness and add more sugar if needed. Simmer to preferred thickness/chunkiness.
