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."

Apple Dumplings Recipe

Apple Dumplings
from the recipe box of Mrs. Leslie Holdsworth
2 cups of sifted pastry flour
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.

Streussel Pie
.  the ingredients are: For the dough, one
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 streusel, 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 job."
