Canned Sliced Apples

Prepare sliced apples as you would for pies.  Place a layer of
apples, 2 or 3 inches thick, in the crisper of refrigerator or granite
pan.  Scatter 1 cup of sugar over apples.  Continue placing apples
in container and add 1 cup of sugar to each layer, having 3 layers
in all when finished.  Place in refrigerator and leave over night.  The
next morning, place apples in jars and divide liquid evenly and
pour over each jar.  There will not be enough liquid to cover
apples, probably about 3 inches in each jar.  
Cold pack 20 minutes
and use like sliced apples for pies.  Ten quarts of sliced apples will
usually make 7 quarts when placed in jars.  Process as usual.

Mrs. Vane Fretwell of Clarksburg said, "You can't buy canned
goods like mother use to can if you had barrels of money, so can
them yourself.  A few jars at a time will be a great saver on the
grocery bill."

2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/3 teaspoon of salt
4 tablespoons of shortening
2/3 cup of mil
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/2 cup of sugar, granulated
1/2 cup of boiling water
6 peeled and cored baking apples
Sift the flour, baking powder ad salt together. Mix in the shortening. Add the milk, using just
enough to form a soft light dough. Turn onto a floured board and roll out into an oblong sheet,
about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 6 equal sized squares and place an apple in the center of each
square. Fill the core cavities with the blended brown sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle with the
lemon juice. Wet the edges of the dough then draw-up over and around the apples, pinching
the edges together so they will not open while baking. Place side by side in a baking dish or pan
and pour around the dumplings a syrup made by boiling water and granulated sugar together
for 3 minutes. The dough may be pricked in several places with a fork to lessen the likelihood of
bursting while baking. Bake in a hot oven 400 degrees from 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are
tender, basting occasionally with syrup in pan.

and a half cups of sifted flour, one half cup shortening (the queen uses the yellow brand), one
teaspoon of salt and three tablespoons water.  Blend, roll and line pie pan.  For the strudel,
three and a half tablespoons butter, a quarter cup sugar, a half cup flour, a quarter teaspoon
cinnamon, a quarter teaspoon vanilla, half a lemon rind grated, a dash of salt.  Mix all this
together until it is crumbly.

For the filling, four apples, grated, a half cup sugar, and eighth cup currants and a quarter
teaspoon of cinnamon.  Mix all ingredients together and fill pie shell.

Put the Streusel over the apples and put a lattice crust, the strips twisted, over all.  Bake at
oven temperature 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

The topping which is added when the pie comes from the oven is this:  Two tablespoons
confectioner's sugar, a half teaspoon of vanilla, a little lemon juice.  This is mixed together and
spread on.

The queen hopes to be a domestic science teacher.  If a prediction might be permitted, she
won't teach long.  Some man will taste that pie and carry her off to his kitchen for a full time
