  • Mood:


I picked up some Northern Spy apples at the Otsego Farmer's market last weekend at $15 a bushel. Tonight my sister Martha came over and we made two apple pies and two big pots of apple sauce. My pie was spiced with cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg. Martha's used cinnamon and ginger. We tested Martha's pie with some vanilla Plainwell Ice Cream (a superlative local brand). Nothing beats the right fruit in season!

One pot of applesauce was spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, the other with cinnamon,ginger, and nutmeg. We make our applesauce a little lumpy and on the tart side. Martha likes hers with cottage cheese. I eat my applesauce straight.
