Home Canned Apples In This Cast Iron Apple Crisp Recipe
For this recipe, I decided to go with two different kinds of home canned apple wedges.
I used one pint of plain apple wedges canned in an ultralight syrup and a pint of the red hot apple wedges.
The reason I did this was to add more variety and to give the apple crisp a stronger cinnamon.
I feel the mixture worked very well.
The taste was just right and not overpowering.
I also felt the apple crisp was sweet, but not sugary sweet.
Here is my cast iron apple crisp recipe.

- Place the cast iron skillet into the oven and turn the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Once the oven is preheated, set the timer to 15 minutes.
- When the 15 minutes is up, remove the aluminum foil and set the timer to 20 minutes.
- When the timer goes off, check the top of the apple crisp to see if the oatmeal is browned, if not, bake the apple crisp for an additional 10 minutes.
- Once the oatmeal topping is slightly brown, remove the cast iron skillet from the oven and let it cool for ten minutes.
- Then slice and serve.
*You can use two cans apple pie filling instead of the two pints of apples if you prefer.
