Have you been eating an apple a day?
Since #Thanksgiving is next week I thought posting the recipe today will give you time to get the ingredients.
Make it an organic holiday and make sure to support your #local growers first! GrannySmith are well known for baking but any apples can be used. I used MacIntosh.
APPLE PIE RECIPE:
Makes two 9 inch crusts for a top & bottom
- 3 cups flour of choice- I used @earthvalleyorganics_alana Spelt flour. It works well for crusts
- Add 10 tablespoon Coconut Oil
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon sugar
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- if using a Food processor add the paddle and blend. Add iced water if needed to blend until smooth.
-let sit x 30 mins. While waiting you can mix the #ApplePieFilling: -10 Apples. Peeled, Cored & Sliced
- 4 tablespoons Cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Tapioca - Tiny pinch of Salt
Mix all ingredients and set aside
Flour a wooden cutting board (if not a clean counter top is fine) Divide the dough in half. Place the 1st half on the floured board and using a rolling pin roll out to the size of about 10inches round. It’s easiest to rill from the middle of the dough and roll it out.
-Place the round flat dough in a piePlate🥧 -Fill the pie plate with tha apple filling
-Roll out the second half of the dough and cover the apple filling
-Pinch the top & bottom crusts and trim any excess dough.
- Pop a hole in the top to allow steam out while baking
-Cover the edges of the crust with aluminum foil to prevent burning the edges (Save the foil for future crusts) -Place pie on a baking sheet and place in a preheated oven set to 350F and bake x 50 mins or until crust is golden brown
Sunday was apple canning day. We canned apple pie filling, apple butter and apple cider. I made the apple cider from apple peels and cores and fermented half of the batch in the fridge for a few days. It's all so good. And of course, we had some left over for fresh eating. Will be making apple cider donuts soon!
Well, my alarm should be going off in less than two hours. Canning is "on hold" until late tomorrow evening. I am getting too old, to pull an all nighter. Lids are pinging, & I am going to crash, until I have to drive J to the bus. Work ought to be fun tomorrow. ♀️#applesauce#applepiefilling#homemadefood#canning#homesteading
