One of my good friends shared this on Facebook and I thought it was so cool..had to pass it on to you....
We had a job this weekend up in Ramona, Ca....Ramona is a small semi mountain community...the job was very easy..only one lock on a condo....but since the town is so close to Julian, we made a day trip out of it and got some of our favorite Julian apple pie and a few apples....unfortunately, we realized inflation must have hit as the apples were twice as expensive as last year....so we didn't get many...we usually buy a 40 lb. box, make applesauce and can quite a few quarts but as we found out one box would cost almost $35.00 decided against it....did get a few lbs though...Jonathan..and some Snow apples....
I found this recipe on the Mr. Food site and think I will try it......sounds very good indeed..
