Directions

  1. Toss apple slices with lemon juice and set aside. Combine water, maple syrup, vanilla, sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large saucepan, stirring until well mixed.
  2. Bring maple syrup mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves, and the mixture thickens and turns clear. Fold in apple slices and return to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to stand for 15 minutes before spooning into a prepared pie crust or freezing.

I agree with other users. This recipe required some "tweaking". First off it should be 3 tsp of cinnamon, As well I added an additional 1 1/2 cups of water and cooked the apples in the syrup mixture. It was still a little on the thick side but overall not too bad.

I'm not above admitting I did something wrong, but I really had to play with the amounts in this recipe. the cinnamon is very strong and the mixture got extremely thick before it got anywhere close to clear. I had to add extra water to thin it out. I haven't put it in a pie but have tasted it. It is ok but has too much cinnamon for my liking.

I have never rated a recipe but this was just awful... TOO much cinnamon (and I used less) and how could a mixture with that much cinnamon be 'clear'? The whole mess was just a waste of time and ingredients,should have read the reviews first!
