  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. salt

Method

  • Place apples in 8" X 8" X 2" pan.
  • Cut a 1" cube of salt pork in 5 slices and then cut each slice in 4 pieces.
  • Combine pork with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Sprinkle over apples.
  • Roll pastry into square ½" larger than top of pan. Place over apples. Fold pastry under and flute against inside edge of pan. Cut steam vents in top.
