6 cups sliced apples (see notes)
1 cup sugar
1 Tblsp. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ Tsp. nutmeg
dash of salt
Pour mixture into a buttered casserole.
Mix and crumble together:
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup flour
¾ cup oatmeal
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup melted butter
Sprinkle crumb mixture over apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, will be golden and bubbly.
Serve with a little ice cream while still warm, or the next day cold . . . it’s good anytime at any temperature!
Stir some dried cherries or raisins into the apple mix. Sprinkle walnuts over the crumb topping just before baking-the nuts toast and add wonderful flavor.
MIX apples for the perfect blend of flavor and texture, sweet apples with tart, apples that hold their shape with those that cook down. Macintosh, Gala and Jonathon make good sauce. Granny Smith and Braeburn hold their shape and are good for pies- especially when mixed with a couple ‘sauce’ apples to melt down and fill in around the chunks or slices. Mac/Granny is my favorite pie/crisp mix.
ASK the grocer or grower for his recommendations. Experiment, it’s fun to learn.
