Finally we are getting some apples from our formerly barren trees.
We washed, peeled and sliced a bowl full of the lovely fruit and poured them into a buttered glass baking dish.
Here is my mother’s favorite recipe for Apple Betty or as known by some, as Apple Crisp.
4 to 6 cups sliced apples
3/4 cup quick oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup soft butter
Optional: add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I love the nuts in this)
Slice the apples into a 10 x 13 baking dish. If they are tart, sprinkle a bit of sugar over the apples. Mix the other ingredients in a separate bowl and sprinkle over the apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Serve hot or cold. It is also good with some ice cream.
If you don’t have an apple tree I do suggest you purchase some nice baking apples and try this delicious and favorite recipe.
It will become your favorite method to serve apples.
