Recipe I'd like to try

I've had this recipe saved for a very long time .... can't remember where I originally found it, but I'd really like to try it out one day:

Apple Pie in a Jar   

28 cups sliced, peeled apples
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup cornstarch
10 cups water
2 tsps cinnamon
3 Tbsps lemon juice

Pack apple slices tightly in quart jars. Make a syrup from sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and water. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Add lemon juice, seal and process jars in water bath 20 minutes. Yield 7 quarts.

These are so handy to have in your pantry. Open a jar -- pour into pie shell and bake -- it is homemade goodness.
