Making Apple Pie Filling

The weekend we went to Ellensburg to get Onyx, we clean picked all of the apples off of our trees so that my mom and I could make apple pie filling. I was originally planning on canning it, but freezing was so much faster so that's what we did. 

We got two big boxes - this was the smaller of the two.
The Apple-Peeler-Corer-Slicer (by Pampered Chef but they have a knock-off at Target) made the work go by so much quicker. 
 I did the peeling/coring/slicing and mom did all the mixing. We used Cinnamin, Nutmeg, sugar and lemon juice. Don't ask for the amounts, my mom just wings it. :)
 Then we measured out how much for one pie, put it in a freezer bag and stuck it in the freezer. I think we made 6-7 bags! It'll be so nice to just pull out one of these and make a pie... like at Thanksgiving and Christmas ;)
