Apple Dumpling Pie

Oct 22, 2011

A couple of years ago we took some of our apples to Great Maine Apple Day, MOFGA's annual event in Unity, to get them identified. We were told they were Priscillas, a late-season variety sought after for its sweetness, and one that stores well. Normally, our tree gives us just enough to provide us with pies throughout the winter. This month, though, we came home from vacation to find our tree stripped bare of apples. Not a one was left, not even drops. I can only assume it was the work of the same deer that mauled our garden while we were gone. I was bereft from the loss, but it gave me a chance to seek out some of the other wonderful varieties available here. To read more and for recipe:
