    What went wrong with it? Was it too much cinnamon? I love the smell of them but not too sure of the cinnamon. Perhaps someone could tell us what went wrong

    i bake all the time and if I do say so my pies are usually great. Umm, isn't it a little early to pick apples off the tree? I know we couldn't use them this early here to eat.

    It's actually quite late. We pick ours when the stem starts to go from green to brown and they aren't been fed from the tree anymore. Also, when they come off the branch with just a litttle tug.

    Well, DH has been eating the eating apples for a while now and they are fine but the cooking apples must be very sour....plus, it was my first attempt so I probably didn't put enough sugar in.

    I absolutely love tart apple pie. I'm sure I would have devoured your's Issy! Ages ago when I was a kid, we visited friends of my parents. The woman had made an apple pie but wouldn't serve it as she realized that she had left out the sugar. I told her I liked sour things so she gave me a slice. It was the BEST ever! Needless to say, I was given the whole pie to bring home.

    Just give it a go again, and add twice the sugar you did this time. Pies are a "learn as you go" thing. All depends upon the fruit at any given time. One year you'll need more sugar and the next year you may need less... taste the apples first and guage from there.

    You could serve the leftover tart pie with a brandy or caramel sauce to sweeten it up.

    And give it another go!!! Never let the pie forget who is boss! :D

    I know this is a hijack and sorry... but it does involve an apple pie... or so I thought... went into the freezer and got one of my home made apple pies out cooked it and served it piping hot with custard... then tried it.... too late.. I had infact taken out a cheese pie that I'd also made and cooked that instead. And nope I didn't label them because of course I'm not some numpty who can't tell the difference and where I put my pies in the freezer :(

    Still, probably tasted better than my apple pie

    Give it another go but use more sugar with the cooking apples. It's trial and error with cooking apples, we like ours to be a bit sour but not too much. I always add blackberries or cinnamon and sultanas.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
