Old Fashioned Apple Pie


This recipe is for a very basic, old fashioned apple pie, using 3 pounds of mixed apples for a nice depth of flavor, and the addition of a bit of jam or jelly as a nice little extra flavor burst. A brush of the bowl juices across the top and we've got another great recipe for the apple recipe collection!

I am of the opinion that the best pie flavor comes from using a variety of apples, one of which should be Granny Smith, because they provide that unique tang to the pie.

When I decided to make this pie though, I didn't have any Granny Smith's on hand, but I did have quite a few apples left from a fruit box that I needed to use up. This pie was made with Golden Delicious, McIntosh, and Red Delicious and it turned out marvelous.

The slice pictured above is drizzled with (a little too much) caramel sauce and topped with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.

This is a pretty standard old fashioned apple pie really, with two exceptions - tips I picked up from Southern Living magazine. 

One was to add in a couple tablespoons of jelly or jam in with the apples - they used apple jelly - but I decided on mango jam since that happened to be what I had, and apple and mango really marry well together.

Even though it was mango, I thought that it would do nothing but enhance the pie. I was right. The jam added a nice level of richness that is simply delicious.

And the second tip, was to use a little bit of the juices from the bowl that the apples had marinated in to baste the top of the pie with. This helps to bring some of the apple flavor into the crust of the pie and gives it a pretty speckled finish from the spices, so when you pour the juices over the apples in the pie crust, be sure to leave a tiny bit in the bottom to brush the crust.
