I spent a lot of time with my grandparents growing up. In fact, it was there that I learned how to cook and acquired my love of food. My grandfather always had every fruit tree possible growing in his backyard. At the beginning of each season, we would go outside with our green basket and pick fruit from the tree that was currently producing.
With the fruit, we would always make a pie. Because pie, as grandfather always said, is the most simplistic dessert that really allows the fruit to shine. One of my favorite pies was the apple pie. Simple with a slight crunch, it always goes so perfectly with vanilla ice cream!
Although we only just moved into a home with a bunch of fruit trees, our apple tree is not so happy right now. It may take a year our two of my husband’s love to begin producing the way it should. I still want my children to have the same sort of memories that I have had so we went apple picking this past weekend. While checking my email, I came across an article about an apple pie recipe by Alex Van Buren rom Yahoo! Food that blew my mind. It was identical to my grandfather’s recipe and looked just like it! I was over the moon!!! I could seriously spend hours looking at Yahoo! Food….and never actually get to checking my email!
