01 Jun Father’s Day Cookouts and Spicy Apple Pies
What’s a cookout without Texas Pepper Jelly’s Rib Candy? To be on the safe side, maybe you’d better order several different flavors, so everyone at the cookout can have his favorite. Our Rib Candy 6-pack is perfect, and unlike most other gift packages from other companies, Texas Rib Candy gift packages are custom-packed; you tell us what flavors you want, and that’s what you get in your package! Order now to make sure you get your 6-pack in time for that Father’s Day cookout!
In the meantime, why not make a spicy apple pie? There’s nothing like the aroma of baking apple pie to make everyone in your house feel at home, and Texas Pepper Jelly’s spicy apple pie will be the best, most delicious pie you’ve ever tasted!
10 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced thin
3/4 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Tiny dash of salt
5 square pats of butter
1/4 cup Texas Pepper Jelly’s Apple Cinnamon Rib Candy
Top and bottom pie crust (I buy mine at the store, or you can make it from scratch if you’re more ambitious than I am.)
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 425.
Put the bottom crust in the pie pan. Fill it with sliced apples.
Sprinkle the sugar, salt, and cinnamon over the top of the apples. Don’t mix.
Pour the Rib Candy over the sugary sprinkles.
Put the butter pats on top of it all: four near the edges and one in the middle.
Again, don’t mix.
Cover with top crust, and decorate it as you want. I always carve “TA” into the top crust, for “Tis apple.” (I read it in a book and liked it.)
Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for about 50 minutes. (I check every five minutes or so after that)
Let the pie “set up” for about a half hour before serving.
You’ll never make an apple pie any other way again. I haven’t. My family would rise up and make me promise to use Rib Candy forever after.
