    This is really an excellent pie filling, but you need to have some time because it is a multi-step process. You macerate the apples for a couple of hours and then strain off the accumulated juice. You cook down the juice with some butter to make a thick syrup and then add back to the apples. The pie sets up beautifully and has a wonderful apple flavor. I used four types of apples that I got at the farmer's market--- Northern Spy, Bramley (first time I've seen them in U.S.), Stayman, and another variety. Absolutely delicious.
