    Default Experimental Pies: Apple-Sweet potato Pie

    Experimental Pies: Apple-Sweet potato Pie

    Christmas is a time for sweets and the never-ending battle against winter weight gains. This is usually followed by a bout of new Year’s resolutions of dieting and loosing the winter fat pack. However, if you’re not completely in fear of the TV’s nagging demands, then read further. Look ye not unto Barbie and Ken, thou art thou own person. Enjoy what you eat without the guilt plastic pointed fingers raise.

    Apple pies are an American staple and making one is as easy as, well, pie. Japan is known for its good produce, especially apples. Fuji in particular, are delicious and start to come in season around fall and winter. The best are allowed to hang on the tree for a bit longer and have a kind of honeyed sugar inside and they retain a little shape while baking. Tales of 100$ mangos aside, their sweet potatoes are also quite good. They are less overtly sweet and have honeyed flavors with respect to the American versions you might be accustomed to. They sell these in winter from trucks that patrol the cities not unlike that ubiquitous summer anthem of ice cream trucks in American suburbs (Ishi-YAAAAKIII~MOOOO).



    To start, peel and mash a cooked sweet potato into a paste adding in a little milk for consistency. Peel the apple and cut it into chunks. In a sauce pan, put in 1/4 cup water, 2 table spoons of butter, a pinch of salt, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and spices of your choice like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. How much sugar you put in is entirely up to you. Most recipes demand upwards of 1-1.5 cups of sugar total, but I personally like mine less sweet and the apples are usually already packing a colt .45 of flavor. Bring your pie filling to a simmer, add the apples and lower the heat to low. Simmer and cover, occasionally stirring the mix until the apples are soft and the sauce becomes thicker. Once it thickens, cut the heat and mix in a couple of teaspoons of lemon juice. Set aside and allow to cool a bit.



    You can prepare a crust from scratch, or cheat by buying a premade pie crust. Line the inside with a layer of sweet potato paste, then cover with your apple filling. Cover with a layer of dough, but you will have to cut air slits in the top to allow steam to escape when you bake it. Using a fork, push the edges together to seal the pie and trap the delicious flavor. Beat an egg well and paint the top of the pie with it. Put it in the oven and bake at 375 for 30 minutes or so or at least until its golden brown.



    Anyone ever try a recipe similar to this? what do you think?

    I want to try this recipe, but I'm severely inept when it comes to understanding which spices are good and bad with each other, and how much to use. Do you mind just telling me what you used, and how much?

    Please and thank you!
