And here’s how you get there:
I make my pastry from the Housekeeping in Old Virginia book, because it’s so darn fun to read.
- 3 cups dried apples
- 2 1⁄2 cups apple cider, or orange juice
- your favorite recipe for pastry for a double-crust 9-inch pie
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon – I use a lot less, since it’s not my favorite.
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg – my favorite, so I use more! And I add allspice, too. And cloves if I feel like it.
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Heat juice or cider to a boil and pour over dried apples; let stand for 1 hour.
- Cook apples in juice for 10 to 15 minutes or till tender.
- Stir remaining ingredients together.
- Add to apples and mix well.
- Put prepared pie crust in a 9-inch pie pan.
- Pour prepared apple mixture into crust.
- Top with 2nd crust.
- Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake at 400° for 50 minutes or till done.
