Miss Apple Betty.............

Helo good evening, So I was feeling like this.. lol... not really but I'm tired out I have been at home trying to Spring clean my house it looks as if a tornado came through.. My youngest daughter with my two grandbabies stay with me and boy what a mess.. I spent the whole day yesterday just cleaning the Kitchen and bathroom.. and started on the Dinning Room .. which I didn't finish and thought I would do today but ended up leaving to bring Vee to wash clothes at Mama's house cause I just have a stackable washer and dryer at home and they aren't to large..
I also picked Apples from the tree that the neighbor just lets them fall all over the floor.. 
and I thought that I would get to them last night but couldn't 
so this morning I put some laundry out and started in after I made tea and Oatmeal.. 
I was going to make a Apple pie, but then I thought well that crust not good for my Gall bladder issues.
So that's when Apple Betty came in Hehehe..

as I ate my Oatmeal I peeled the apples...

Sliced them up.. How do you like my Green glass depression bowl.. I found it in Mama's storage when I was cleaning it.. I have a set of yellow ones but this it large and too pretty.. 

I really love this Lemon juicer.. the top has a ridge with openings for the juice to drain out and the seeds and pulp stay behind.. 

Okay ready for the Oven..
Are your ready for the simple recipe.. Ok, here it is....

 Apple Betty

    4 cups thinly sliced apples

    1/4 cup orange juice

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour

    1 cup white sugar

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    1 pinch salt

    1/2 cup butter

    30 mins

    45 mins

    1 hr 15 mins


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie plate.

    Mound sliced apples in the pie plate. Sprinkle with orange juice.
    In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Scatter over the apples.
    Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm.

( I didn't have Orange Juice so I used some Pineapple juice that worked out fine.)


It taste nice and would be lovely with some Vanilla Ice Cream.. a simple little recipe for a quick desert..
I hope you are all just fine..
With love

I'm on my I-Pad and I had took some photos from it to put on my post today, but there
Doesn't seem to be a way. It doesn't make any sense
So I'm annoyed. With....

I'm not happy with posting from my I-pad at all. I can't get the photos larger. Waste all that monies for not much.

Really mad.  Hope your having a wonderful day
