Apple Pie Filling

1 2/3 cups dry apple slices
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 cups water
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice (optional)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix all dry ingredients together. Then add water and lemon juice and mix well. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. If baking in a pie, preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Put filling in unbaked pie shell, in oven and bake 40 minutes or until golden brown.
