Fisse: Enjoy fall and apples

Greensburg — The Extension Homemakers are beginning to think of our fall activities.

Our Achievement Night is Oct. 4 at the Greensburg Learning Center.

Get your reservations to Janet Bedel by Sept. 24. The cost is $8.50, and it will be a good evening.

Also, keep Oct. 27th on your calendar for our Women Just Want To Have fun Day. More details and a list of the program will be in the column later.

I have a few of the recipes from the Apples on Parade contest at the fair. It seems when it is fall we often think about apple dishes.

Carmel Apple Salad

3 apples, finely chopped

1 box sugar-free instant dry butterscotch pudding

1 (8oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice

1 (8oz.) tub fat-free whipped topping thawed

1 c. chopped peanuts

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; chill until serving.

 

Cranberry Waldorf Salad

2 c. chopped apples (red delicious)

1/4 c. chopped celery

1 1/2 T. chopped walnuts

1/3 c.. cranberry-orange relish

Combine chopped apples, celery, walnuts and relish in a bowl; toss. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

 

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

8 medium apples, peeled and sliced

1 c. or less of sugar

dash of cinnamon

1/3 c. butter or margarine

1 1/2 c. granola cereal

Place apples in a greased crockpot; add cinnamon and sugar. Melt butter in a bowl and toss with granola cereal. Add to apples. Cook on low for eight hours or overnight.

 

We had a breakfast at church and this is the recipe for Country Potatoes.  Everyone liked it, so I thought I would share it with you.

12 red or new potatoes

6 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled

2 c. grated cheddar cheese

1/2 stick butter, melted

1/4 to 1/2 c. chopped onion, sautŽed in bacon fat

salt and pepper to taste

Boil potatoes with skins on until done. Drain and cool. Thinly slice the unpeeled potatoes. Butter the bottom of a 9 by 13 pan. Put a layer of potatoes, salt pepper, half of cheese, onion and bacon in dish. Drizzle half of the butter over layer. Make another layer the some way. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbling hot.

 

We also spent a few days in the Amish country at Muddlburry and Amish Acres, and of course I bought another cookbook. I will have some new recipes soon that I have tried.

Happiness is like potato salad; when you share it with others, it's a picnic.
