<<< My personal favorite is Old Marian's Pork and Apple Pie, which is very very tasty. I use a little more spice than she calls for, and replace the pine nuts (which I don't care for) with slivered almonds.  Good cold too, and makes nice hand pies for events.

Devra (gonna make one for dinner) >>>

So, what is your redaction for this recipe? I'm assuming Old Marian's recipe will be out in her book about the two Pennsic eateries.  Is this dish based on a period recipe of some type? Or, like many of the early SCA dishes, was it a traditional recipe which just "seemed right"?

Replacing pine nuts with slivered almonds doesn't sound like a bad substitution and it is probably cheaper, although they are probably much more available now than they were 20 years ago.
