When You Want To Be Loving

Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs. Proverbs 10:12

Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned.   Song of Songs 8:7

Can you stand one more apple recipe this fall? I have shared our Caramel Apple Crisp, early this year however mom made an Apple Goodie Dessert that hit the ball clean out of the park.  I believe this is the very best apple crisp type dessert we have ever eaten.  She used a recipe from her Nebraska Methodist Hospital Family Cookbook, copyright 1979.”  In her book she wrote “use this!”  She used the basic recipe and then she added raisins, nuts, and maple syrup.  The combination of the apples, cinnamon, and sugar caramelized as it cooked and as all the flavors meld it turned out absolutely wonderful.  You can use any variety of apples from Winesap, Granny Smith, Fuji, Gala, Pink Lady or a combination of them.  Mom used Gala and they were perfect.  They kept their shape so they weren’t mushy but they still cooked nicely.  This makes a nice bit 9” x 13” pan so if you are looking to feed dessert to a bunch this holiday season, think “apple goodie!!”
