Freezer Recipe- Apple Cinnamon Crumb



Somewhere I picked up an over 600 page book on preserving food. It is: Stocking Up How to Preserve the Foods You Grow Naturally by Carol Hupping Stoner, 1977. This book has info on just about everything- fruits, vegetables, dairy, meats and fish, nuts, seeds and grains.
This recipe reminds me of a dessert we use to have in the grade school lunch room. It was a layered cup of cooked apples and crumbs, but it was served at room temperature.


Apple Cinnamon Crumb


1 pound cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced


1 to 2 tablespoons water


1 tablespoon honey


1/4 cup raisins (if desired)


2 tablespoons butter


1 teaspoon cinnamon


1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts


1/4 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs (or wheat germ or bran)


3 tablespoons honey


Cook apples with water and 1 tablespoon honey until soft. Mash lightly. Add raisins.
Melt butter in a saucepan, and add cinnamon, chopped nuts and bread crumbs. Brown gently. Add 3 tablespoons honey.


Layer the crumbs and mashed apples in a foil pie plate, beginning and ending with the crumbs. Press down lightly. Cool quickly. Freeze. Wrap, label, seal, and date. Return to freezer.


When ready to serve: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove wrapping and bake for about 1 hour until crisp and golden brown. Serve hot with whipped cream, ice cream, or yogurt. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Hi Rochelle,
I was just thinking about digging out this book the other day. I hope I still have it somewhere around here. I absolutely want to share this recipe with my daughter. It was one of her favorite after school snacks. I wonder if she remembers?

I swear my mom made this but mixed the crumbs (she used wheat germ sometimes too)with oats. I sent out your package it should be there in 5 days. pat

I've had this cookbook for years too! Although I'm not really fond of apple pie, I do like apple crumb recipes such as this one.
