Sugarless Apple Pie Filling

My mom can't have sugar, and I like to eat as little as possible myself, so I'm always on the lookout for yummy sugarless treats I can pass off as "dessert." This has been a favorite lately. It still has a lot of calories and natural sugars, but if you're just looking to avoid sugar (and any carcinogenic sweetener), this is a great one!

1 can (12 oz) frozen apple juice concentrate
2 T butter
3 T quick-cooking tapioca
1/8 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground nutmeg
6-7 cups peeled, thinly sliced baking apples

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients and simmer, covered 10-15 minutes. 

Use in a pie shell, wrapped in bread dough (like a calzone) or just top with whipped cream and eat out of a bowl. Yummy!

I made this pie last night. The flavor was very good, very appley instead of sugary. The only thing I will change next time will be to increase the tapioca, mine was pretty runny.
