THE FOUR POINTS
|APPLE PIE.--First line your plate with
a nice crust; then put in one
tablespoonful of flour and
two-thirds of a cup of
sugar--more if the apples are
very sour; mix flour and sugar
together; next fill with apples,
sliced thin; spice to your taste;
sprinkle a little salt; add
one-half cup of water; cover;
bind the edge with an inch-wide
strip of old cotton; wet with
cold water. Bake a nice brown.
|BROWN BETTY.--Use one cup of bread
crumbs, two cups of chopped
apples, two tablespoonsful of
butter, one-half cup brown sugar.
Bake in pudding dish; put in
first a layer of crumbs, then a
layer of apples, seasoning, etc.
Serve hot, with wine sauce, or
sugar and cream.
|APPLE CUSTARD.--One quart of sweet
milk, one teacupful of sugar, and
one cup of bread, grated; three
eggs, three or four sweet apples,
pared and quartered. Put in an
earthen crock and bake one hour.
Season with cinnamon, or nutmeg,
or grated orange peel.
|APPLE JELLY.--Use any quantity of sound
crab apples; wash them carefully,
but do not peel; fill a
preserving pan with the apples,
and just cover them with water;
boil till they are in a pulp,
then strain through a hair sieve.
To every pint of juice add one
pound of white sugar and a little
essence of lemon. Boil the whole
till it is perfectly clear, and
jellies when cold. It ought to
turn out of the shape quite stiff
