Stewed Apples

3 pounds of Jonathan or Granny Smith apples
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon powdered cloves

Peel apples (or wash them well and leave unpeeled.) Cut into quarters and place in a large (6 quart or more) saucepan. Add enough water to measure 1-1/2 inches in the saucepan; sprinkle salt over top. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Add sugar and spices. Cook over low heat until apples are soft, but not mushy.

This is a nice side dish for pork chops or ham. Adjust the sugar and spices to suit the apples and your taste buds.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
