Welcome to the Captain's Galley
Here we will have lots of fun in the cooking and
then the eating and that I enjoy the best.
2 lbs. of good cooking apples
2 oz. chopped almonds
4 oz. of currants and sultanas mixed
1 stick of cinnamon about 3 inches long,
the juice of 1/2 a lemon
Allinson bread and butter cut very thinly
And sugar to taste.
Pare, core, and cut up the apples, and stew them with a teacupful of water
and the cinnamon, until the apples have become a pulp.
Remove the cinnamon, and add sugar, lemon juice, the almonds, and the
currants and sultanas, previously picked, washed, and dried; mix all well
and allow the mixture to cool.
Butter a pie-dish and line it with thin slices of bread and butter, then
place on it a layer of apple mixture, repeat the layers, finishing with
slices of bread and butter.
Bake for 3/4 hour in a moderate oven.
