An apple a day

The idiom is that an apple a day will keep the doctor away. I request some clarification. Which doctor? And apples in which form. Since the two varieties of apples that grow in north central Florida are not sold commercially, I am stuck with the selection at the local Publix. I am thrilled when the first arrivals of Honey Crsips come in the fall. Last week I bought Ambrosia apples to bake a pie for Pi Day at school. It was to accompany the “Egg pie” that closely resembled a ham and cheddar quiche. The ham pie was completed; the apples stayed on the kitchen counter until last night around 8PM.

I admittedly cheat with Pillsbury store bought pie crusts, but they are easy and decent enough. Plus I can have a pie in the oven in less than 15 minutes.

This means I can have warm apple pie in my tummy in 75 minutes. And pie for breakfast. And maybe a slice in about an hour. Yum!
