This recipe tastes yummy, and is believed to be medieval, but any
original references are lost.  Can anyone tell me if it matches a real
medieval recipe or is a modern concoction?


1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
2 tblsps flour
4 cups sliced apples (about 4 medium)
1 tsp lemon juice
6-8 links of  Italian sausage, sliced and browned.
2 prepared deep dish pie crusts

Combine sugar, spices, salt & flour in bowl. Slice the apples and
sprinkle with lemon juice.  In one of the prepared pie crusts, layer;
½ apples, 1/3 dry mixture, sausage, 1/3 dry mixture, rest of the
apples, last of the dry mixture.  Top with another pie crust.  Press
the two crusts together and cut some vent holes in the top crust.

Cover the edge of the pie with aluminum foil.  Bake at 375 for 25
minutes.  Remove the foil and bake 20 - 25 minutes more, or until
golden brown.  Serve warm or cold.
