I made you a pie, but I eated it.
There’s an apple tree in the back yard. The apples aren’t very good. They’re slightly sweet, not at all tart, and very small. Usually I leave them for the squirrels or else let them go wherever apples go when they fall off of the tree. But inspired by this post I’ve made my first pie. (Unless you count ‘pizza pie’, wihch I’ve made; but I don’t consider pizza a pie.) Since the apples were a bit of an unknown quantity I didn’t want to invest a lot of time, so I used frozen crust.
I used one of these to process the apples. The apples, by the way, are about the size of Roma tomatoes or small plums. Would have been too much trouble to peel them with a knife. The peeler/corer/slicer made quick work. I imagined I’d have a bunch of circular apple slices, but the slices fell apart when I put them in the bowl. Doesn’t matter, I guess.
Anyway I used Labelless’s recipe of 3/4 cups sugar, three Tbsp flour and one tsp cinnamon. I’ve just had a slice, and I pronounce it good.
