Hello, everybody! You heard there was a rumor of lemon pie? Well, too bad! It's aplets and cotlets time. I don't care if you don't know what those are. I'm going to school you in a Northwest favorite... whether you like it or not.
*whew* That tough talk is hard. Let's give that a break, shall we?
So, if you're unfamiliar with the delicious delicacy, here's a little picture of what they usually look like... box included. I could eat these by the pound. But luckily for my scale, they're usually only available at Christmas time and then are about $5-8 a box. In the off-season, they're MUCH more expensive. So we enjoy them at Christmas.
juice, any variety you prefer (I tried apple, pom, cranberry, white grape and cider flavors)
walnuts (these are off our lovely black walnut tree)
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 TBS lemon juice
2 TBS lime juice
Pour into a pan and either wait for it to half-set so the walnuts are mixed in, or add them right away. I add them right away and then chilled in the fridge over night.
Until next time!
