Ingredients

6 c
tart apple slices. ( wa. apples, please )
1/3 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1 pinch
nutmeg
1 pt
water
1/2 c
honey
2 tsp
lemon juice
1-1/2 tsp
corn starch..dissolved in a little cold water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash apples well.
Core peel and slice apples 1/4 inch thick, place in a bowl and dredge with the cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg.
2
Combine the best of the peelings and cores with the water,honey,sugar and lemon juice, in a saucepan and simmer gently for about 30 minutes.Strain off the liquid and thicken it with the corn starch. This liquid syrup, will be added to the pie after it is baked..through the hole on top!
3
Line a 9 inch pie plate with a good flaky-type pastry rolled to about the thickness of a
nickle. Pile sliced apples into the pastry shell.(I would now dot with butter.)Cover with a pastry top into which a 1/2 inch circular vent has been cut( into the middle) to allow steam to escape.
4
Brush top of the crust with milk to aid in browning. Bake in a pre-heated 400 F oven 30 minutes.
Remove pie from oven and pour syrup into the top vent hole as much as the pie will hold. Let the pie cool before serving.
