I know I can search on internet but it doesn't compare to you'uns recipes.

I'm searching for old family recipe for Apple Pie, Applesauce, Apple Dumplings.... anything applelicious!

I still can't believe someone would name their kid Apple.

Summer is coming to an end soon, nothing like Fall harvest time!

Take care!!!!!

Apple Types

Before I start cooking, I look up apple types here at TOFA: http://www.almanac.com/content/best-apples-baking

There's nothing worse than using a soft sweet apple for eating in a baked dish as it comes out very wimpy.

I take a plain ol' slightly tart apple pie recipe -- no cream, etc. -- and alternate layers of apple and dried cherries.

The cherries plump in the baking, and adds color and a tart bite here and there.

Of course this is no substitute for apple pie with a melted slice of yellow cheddar cheese and cinnamon sauce!

Have you considered using

Have you considered using apples in meat dishes? This is a Lamb and Apple Casserole recipe from 1969. Moroccan cuisine has many dishes that include both meat and fruit.

Apples & Meat

Hi Irenes,

Yes, apples are great in meat dishes. It's already out in the news that it's healthy to substitute applesauce for oil in recipes.

I love apple in the 15 Bean and Ham "Soup" (really ends up being a Stew in consistency), it adds just a little sweet to offset the beans. And I use less stewed tomato. Allspice adds a similar flavor as well.

I enjoy Moroccan dishes and will look up yours listed.
