I grew up in the tiny town of Lyman Washington located right next to the Skagit River. (population 256) My little German grandmother used to make this every fall when the apples were ripe. She swore by the Yellow Transparents or the Kings from our apple trees, but any tart apple works quite well. Granny Smith are available just about everywhere. She never measured anything, but after 40 years of being able to cook this with her, I came up with measurements. Don't forget to add the pinch of love
