Hooray, it's Fall!
As the brown leaves are beginning to cover up my sidewalk outside, I remember those days when we raked them into piles for jumping! Fall is the fun time when we start to wear sweatshirts and begin thinking about our Halloween costumes. The harvest time that naturally is followed by one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving!
Anyway, this is one of the best recipes I have for you, it is a favorite in my family. My dad has made this for years.
Here it is:
- First, fill up a 9 X 13 pan with apple slices (I use a 5-lb bag of Granny Smith apples)
- Drizzle with 1/3 cup orange juice.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup rice flour + 1/2 cup potato flour (or 1 cup of any flour will do)
- 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/3 tsp. nutmeg
- dash salt
- 1/4-1/2 cup butter
Bake for 45 minutes at 350 or 375. Crumb topping should be slightly browned.
Underground tip: Tart apples taste the best. A combination of different varieties of tart apples is even better.
