Apple Rum Farmhouse Pudding By Freda



An apple a day Keeps the Doctor away they say. This is a Favorite this granny. Very Good EASY Dessert that has "NO CRUST" for the added Calories. (if Your Cutting Calories)
Yet this is so Pleasing and elegant to serve.

Back on the farm, When apples are Plentiful, freezeing apples, was what was done, saved, for any time of the year. . . Just for this recipe and a few others.

Also great to take to Potlucks or family get-togethers.
Hint: You can also add Raisins if You desire.
