I would contribute my mother-in-law's recipe for poppy seed cake.smiley - cake

But I don't think it belongs on the Edited Guide, because it's not just the recipe that's interesting. My mother-in-law was Hungarian and her story is interesting.

Hi MVP, I've just broached your query with a couple of the Senior Volunteers, who both agree with me that this is exactly what the Guide needs, as the story is personal history rather than fiction and so sets the context of the food in just the same way as good recipe books do.

I'm prepared to stick my neck out here, because we've talked for a long time about broadening the remit of what gets selected for the Guide. And become 'Edited' or 'Approved' means that more people get to find (and read) your writing.

How about you write it - and then submit it to either Peer Review or one of the other workshops and see the type of response you receive? I'd really love to have the recipe, and hear the story too.

You know, I was going to say surely we have an apple pie recipe? But I am wrong - we don't! smiley - yikes

So, we need one. Do you make Birds custard to go with it? This might be interesting as a sub-header.

smiley - apple

Thanks Matt smiley - biggrin

Well, I was going to do the joke about I buy it from the shop then cook it at home...so it's homemade...

However, we have a local Nature Reserve where we steal blackberries fom and my missus makes a very nice Apple and Blackberry Pie, so I'll get here to collaborate an Entry, including scrumping... smiley - winkeye

The birds in New England have not learned the gentle art of making custard. Cheddar cheese or whipped cream are suitable toppings for apple pie. If you're French, the a la mode style involves vanilla ice cream. smiley - drool

There are some who seem to believe that applepieis quintessentially American. Given that apple trees had to be brought from England to North America, that seems far-fetched to me. I have a recipe called "The best Apple Pie," but I can't claim credit for having invented it, so I will
stick to what I have invented....
