    Thanks Zach.

    I got some beautiful Washington apples yesterday from Harry and David's. I thought Washington was a descriptive term for where the apple comes from, but in this case it was the variety, go figure. Really nice apples, but I gotta say, they didn't beat those Honey Crisps. Less juicy, less sweet, a bit harder, a more sturdy apple and obviously a later bloomer.
     
  2. Good looking pie. I have a honey crisp apple tree in my back yard. Darn squirrels and bees got most of them this year.

    Bait! Squirrel Jambalaya mighty good!

    Its been within the last 10 years that I first heard Honey Crisp, and I must say they are currently my favorite.
     
  4. Between the rabbits in our gardens eating hundreds of dollars worth of plants and the squrrils eating our apples I was compelled to buy a pellet gun that shoots 1250 feet per sec. I have since then eliminated 60 rabbits and 11 squrrils, squrrils are harder to hit, they move a lot and fast but I am a deadly shot and really miss once I have them in the cross hairs. I have not eaten any of them lol. Wish there was another way of dealing with them.
    Two years ago We got hundreds of apples off out tree.

    I see you called LEM's customer service department and inquired on how much water to add to your crust!

    I'm just sitting here drooling Kevin. I love apple pie and that caramel apple jelly topping sounds fantastic.

    Thanks Dave

    This year had the best apple crop I ever saw. Have not seen Honey Crisp as large or delicious since these were made.
    Thank you Gary.

    It was the apples, it was an exceptional year for apples.

    I'm jumping on this thread because it is apple season here in NorCal. There's a place called Apple Hill just outside of Sacramento in the foothills near Placerville. We went up there this past Saturday. Bumper to bumper traffic. Wanted to buy apples, but ended up buying only gifts and a ready-made frozen apple pie. I generally don't like ready-made pies, but those at Apple Hill, especially from one of our favorite places called Grandpa's Cellar, are as close to homemade as you can get. $13.50 for a traditional apple pie.

    I will be following Foam's recipe for pie crust. Points, or Likes, or Thumbs up, whatever it is these days.

    I forgot to twist around once while baking but was still good....I tryed a new pie recipe was OK, but I'll stick with my old tried and true!

    BTW I was right before, go with the whole top crust with vent slits to get a better baked apple!

    Hope you enjoy your pie.
