This recipe, a spicy new twist for an old favorite, comes from The Sandwich Book, by Judy Gethers, Vintage Books, Random House, New York, 1988.

1 can (3 ounces) tuna, well drained
1 small firm apple, peeled, cored, and diced
2 tablespoons chopped sweet onion
1 small stalk celery, diced
1 teaspoon curry powder (your preference)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup jalapeno jelly (optional)
2 pita pockets

In a small bowl, combine the tuna, apple, onion, and celery. In a separate bowl, stir together the curry, cumin, and jalapeno jelly (if using), and add to tuna. Mix well. Warm the pitas, cut open, and stuff.
