Baked Apples and Potatoes

Dear Mothers,

It is still pretty cold here in Iowa. It is warming up, though, today and it is about 5 above. PTL.

When the children were all home and I was tryin’ to warm up the house on cold days, I would use the oven a lot. I would load the oven with potatoes to bake and also I would bake apples at the same time. Just take your apples and core them out with a knife. So they are still together with a hole through the middle or through the core. Set the apples in a buttered pan and put butter in the hole and brown sugar and cinnamon. The potatoes and apples will be done about the same time, I suppose. Put the oven temp at about 350 for about an hour? Just check them with a fork to see if they are soft, then they are done.

We also made fried apples. Just take out your fryin’ pan and put some butter and oil in it and brown sugar, then just fry the apples. I would use about a half stick of butter or margarine and about a cup of brown sugar. Might need to add a bit of water. That way you have plenty of syrup as we used the syrup for pancakes. I would make pancakes and then set the fried apples on the top and some syrup for each family member.
