>> Pork and Apple Pie
>> Old Marian (Marian of Edwinstowe)
>> Pie crust for 9” double crust pie
>> 2 Tablespoons butter
>> 1 lb lean pork, diced
>> 2 chopped onions
>> 2 apples – cored & sliced
>> Quarter to half teaspoon each: cinnamon, cloves
>> Half to one teaspoon sage
>> Pinch of ground black pepper
>> Half teaspoon salt
>> A good handful each of: raisins, currants, pine nuts or slivered almonds
>> Quarter to half C water, if needed
>> Additional crust for decorations, if desired
>> Beaten egg (optional)
>> 1. Preheat oven to 425*F and prebake the lower pie shell 5 – 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350-375*F.
>> 2. Melt butter in a large pot.
>> 3. Add all other ingredients except water and egg.
>> 4. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pork is cooked and apples and onions are tender. If necessary, add water as filling cooks, if it looks very dry. (I’ve never needed to.)
>> 5. Taste and correct seasoning.
>> 6. Place in pastry crust. Cover with top crust and crimp edges closed.
>> 7. Cut a steam hole in the top crust. If desired, decorate with more pastry in shape of leaves, apples, pigs, whatever.
>> 8. If desired, brush crust with beaten egg.
>> 9. Bake pie until crust is done, about 25-35 minutes.
>> I always use the larger amount of spices, but start with the smaller amount. You can also add 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, a pinch of ground cardamom, and/or a pinch of allspice.
>> This doubles very nicely, and freezes well. It makes very nice little empanada/tartlets, but you will probably need twice as much crust to do that.
>> Also excellent cold. You can make 8 slices, but probably 4 people will eat it all up.
