It is funny how much I remember from my mother..She always told me about how my grandmother would make peach jam, save the peels and make peach jelly..Now this is what I call smart.
Course my grandmother came from Poland and raised 14 children; here in America..They had a farm and she was a wonderful cook..so was my mother...So now I share the Apple Crisp..simple, but tasty..
Apple Crisp is very easy..just peel the apples, slice thin and put in an 8" square dish. Separate bowl,.Mix 1cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1tsp salt, 1 tsp bake. powder, cinnamon to taste. Add 1 egg to the dry ingredients and mix till crumbly, melt 1 stick of butter...put mixture on top of apples, drizzle butter over top. Bake 350 for about 1 hour..Can't beat it..
Put some whip cream/ice cream on top and you have a nice dessert.
Now use the scraps..peels/cores for jelly...very little wasted.
I won't kid you..there is something about seeing how much you can save..It makes you proud of yourself.
I will probably give most of my jelly away to family/friends..nothing like sharing the wealth.
Note:..I would only use organic apples/peaches..
Till next time, keep looking up.
