A couple of weeks ago, my dear friend Kris shared this wonderful recipe for Dutch Apple Pie, made entirely from food storage ingredients. With a ten year old can of dehydrated apples already sitting on my kitchen counter
and my twelve year old hungry for an after-school treat, I thought this was a perfect recipe for Lizzie to try. Now, you may notice that the apples look a bit odd, after 10 years of storage, but don’t be scared. These babies are supposed to last 30 years…even if their appearance and texture has changed a bit. TMI?
4 cups dehydrated apples, firmly packed
4 cups water
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Bring water to a boil in a 3 quart pan. Add apples, stir and let stand for 5 minutes. Add sugar, flour and cinnamon to apples. Cook, stirring constantly until thick and bubbly. Pour into an oiled or sprayed 7 x 11 inch pan. (We buttered our pan, because we could.) The main difference I noticed about this recipe was that in preparing the apples this way created a very VERY luscious, almost caramel-like, filling.
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
Cut butter into flour and sugar until crumbly.
Sprinkle crumb topping over the apple filling.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.
Serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or half and half.
WE LOVED THIS DUTCH APPLE PIE!!! If you have dehydrated apples in your storage you should definitely try this recipe. If you don’t have dehydrated apples in your storage,
