Sky High Apple Pie

October 19, 2008

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
115 g unsalted butter
25 g all-purpose flour
60 ml water
100 g white sugar
110 g packed brown sugar
8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced

1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
2.Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work of crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
3.Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.


Keeping it Healthy Salad

* 1 medium green cabbage, shredded
* 2 carrots, shredded
* 1 green pepper, sliced paper thin in small strips
* 2 kirby cucumbers, peeled and sliced paper thin
* 1/3-1/2 cup sugar
* 1 onion, sliced paper thin
* 1/4 cup water
* 1/2 cup canola oil or vegetable oil
* 3/4 cup white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
* 1 teaspoon sea salt
* 1 teaspoon oregano


1.Shred or slice (and I do mean paper thin) all vegetables.

2. Mix other ingredients and pour over the veggies.

3.You can make as quickly as a half a day before serving, but it is best to make it so that it can sit overnight.

4.Refrigerate immediately after mixing veggies and dressing.
