NEW! Apple Crisp

A fall favorite in my house!  So simple and delicious!

Filling:
5 apples, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Juice of 1 lemon (or 1 tablespoon of lemon juice)
1/4 cup brown sugar
Oil or butter for greasing the pan

Topping:
3/4 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a bowl, mix the peeled apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and brown sugar. Butter or oil an 8 x 8- inch pan. Put apple mixture in it and set it aside. In another bowl, mix the oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nuts (if using) and bits of margarine or butter. Rub mixture with a fork until fat is mixed in. Spread this on top of the apple mixture. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes.

NEW! Applesauce

Apples
Cinnamon
Brown Sugar

Peel, core and quarter apples and put into a large pot. Add some water (1-2 cups) to the pot to prevent burning. Simmer covered and on medium-high heat until apples are soft. Pour mixture into Food Processor bowl and process until desired smoothness. Return to pot over med-low heat, add desired amount of cinnamon and up to ¼ cup of brown sugar. When boiling fill warm mason jars with hot applesauce, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.  Put on lids and loosely fitted screw tops and process in boiling water canner for 20 minutes. Alternatively, just store applesauce in fridge without processing in canner.
