No-Sugar Apple Pie

Ingredients:
Pastry for two-crust 9-inch pie 1/2 to 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice frozen concentrate 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Dash of salt 6 cups sliced, peeled apples 2 tablespoons margarine 1 or 2 packets artificial sweetener, depending on tartness of apples

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees (Howard baked it hotter than that, but the difference in ovens might cause you to burn your pie). Mix the ingredients so they’re well-dispersed, and place in bottom pie crust; top with upper crust and trim to cover. Cut a few slits in crust to vent heat. Cover edges of crust with 3-inch strips of aluminum foil. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble up through the slits in it. Very tart apples might require 4-5 packets of sweetener, though Mother said the pie she ate made with 2 packets of Equal “just was wonderful; it couldn’t have been any better.” Readers with questions or comments for Dave Kessler may write to him in care of this publication.
