Last fall I was blessed with several large boxes of apples from my aunt’s apple tree. I wanted to make sure they didn’t go to waste.
So I canned apples in syrup, applesauce, apple butter and apple cider, dehydrated apples and made and canned apple pie filling.
Now I get to enjoy the fruits of my labor (oh my, I said ‘Fruits” of my labor. See what I did there??)
My favorite thing to make with these preserved apples is apple crumble dessert using the apple slices in light syrup. It’s delicious and comes together quickly for a delicious dessert when company surprises you with a visit.
Bada-boom, bada-bing and dessert is being served! Looks and tastes like you toiled away in the kitchen for hours. (shhhh…)
First I pull out my ingredients: a pint of home-canned apples in syrup, all-purpose flour, quick-cooking oats (I usually blend about 1/2 quick cooking and 1/2 old fashioned oats), brown sugar, cloves, ground nutmeg (I often substitute cinnamon) a pinch of salt, vanilla extract, softened butter and chopped nuts. I prefer pecans since we have some amazing pecan trees right here on our property.
Now for the hard and complicated directions (because you know I love complicated recipes here at the Homestead) 😉
In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients, cut in softened butter and put bowl aside. Drain the canned apples, reserving the syrup and pour drained apples in an approximately 6×6 casserole dish. Sprinkle 1/2 of the oat mixture over the apples and fold to coat.
Pour the reserved syrup over the apples and top with the remaining oat mixture. I like to dot the top of the crumble with small pats of butter. But that’s just my preference & not really part of the recipe.
Then I pop the casserole dish into a 350-degree oven for 30 – 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
No really, that’s it! Hey, if a recipe isn’t delicious, easy, quick AND adaptable it doesn’t hang around long in my kitchen. This one’s a keeper!
Perfection! And making this home-made dessert is good for the budget since it’s using home-canned apples and standard pantry ingredients.
If you’ve canned apples in syrup and you’re wondering what you can make that’s delicious and quick – give it a try.

NOTE: For an even quicker dessert, you can make Crumble From actual Pie Filling. Whip it up in minutes!
Apple Crumble Dessert from Pint Jars Using Home-Canned Apples
You've canned those fresh apples, now here's a delicious recipe to use them in! This apple crumble comes together quickly using a pint of your home-canned apples in syrup.
- 1 Pint Home-Canned Apples in Syrup
- 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
- 3/8 t (pinch) Salt

In a medium bowl, combine 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cloves, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (or cinnamon), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and pinch of salt.

This was the first apples that i ever canned this year, that being said i am SO happy that i found this recipe. It was DELICIOUS, i will most certainly be making this from now on. Its the week after thanksgiving and i threw in some homemade cranberry sauce that didnt get used up. It was still so yummy, and im making a larger batch tonight just regular to take to our second thanksgiving.
That’s awesome Tabby, I’m glad you love this crumble as much as we do. And a huge ‘CONGRATS’ on canning your first apples this year! ~TxH~
When I threw this together tonight, I was worried it wouldn’t set up, but I was wrong. It was perfect!! I used a quart of apples in syrup, doubled the recipe, and used pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon instead of the nutmeg and cloves. So, so delicious! I will make this again for sure!
So glad you liked it as much as we do Meagan. A quick homemade dessert made with home-canned goodness. Gotta love it! ~TxH~

Yes Tracy, I’m hoping I get another supply of apples this year from my aunt – I’ll be canning some apples again so I’ll be ready for this quick dessert when company stops by. ~TxH~
Hmm. Hmmm. I can’t wait for apple season! It’s a month away for us–and our trees are loaded. Thanks for the recipe. In fall, we call apple crisp “breakfast”.
Ummmm Sally, apple crisp for breakfast?? YES! ~TxH~
Thank you for sharing your recipe! We canned apples for the first time this year and now I need recipes! With a winter weather advisory outside seems like a perfect night to warm up the oven and bake something we grew and canned ourselves! 🙂 Yum, can’t wait!

Yummmy!!! Sounds SO good! Thanks for sharing the recipe and linking it up to Thrifty Thursday this week!
We call this apple crisp in Michigan. We’ve made it with blueberries,peaches and apples. It’s so easy and good.
Matt – I’ve heard it called both crumble and crisp – maybe a regional difference in terms? But you’re right, it’s easy and GOOD! ~TxH~
Wow! This looks easier than pie!! Definitely will try – it might be my new favorite! Catherine (new follower)
Catherine, it really IS easy, and quick – give it a try. ~TxH~
We used to get pecans from my husband’s uncle. We all looked forward to the pie my dh would make for Thanksgiving. Your apple crumble sounds so yummy!
Thanks for sharing your recipe at Fabulously Frugal Thursday!
Barb, especially with the cost of pecans these days. I was spoiled for years to have ample supply in the freezer but ran out last year and had to buy them. WHEW! ~TxH~
This looks delicious and your presentation is beautiful:) Makes me feel like fall is here already. (I wish) Saw your post over @ All Things with A Purpose. Visit me sometime!
Thanks for your kind words Cathy. I very much enjoy your site! ~TxH~
This looks so good…a real comfort food.
And I can see how it would be even better with your home canned apples.
