I don't know about you, but I personally have a strong liking for Apple Tarts. To me, they are very delicious. The following are instructions for the making of a typical Apple Tart.
2 lbs. of apples
2 oz. of chopped almonds
1 cupful of sultanas and currants
12 oz. of fine wheat meal
1 teaspoonful of ground cinnamon
4 and 1/2 oz. of butter
Peel the pieces of apples. After that, divide each of them into four equal parts. Next take out the core from them.
Stew them in a small amount of water that is just enough to prevent them from burning. When the apples are sufficiently tender, introduce the almonds, cinnamon currants and sultanas into the stew. Add sugar as well.
Let the stew simmer until the apple pieces becomes a pulp. Allow the mixture to cool down. Using the wheat meal, butter and a little bit of water, make the combination into a paste. Next roll out the paste and lay it round a flat dish.
Brush the paste over with white of eggs. Turn the apple mixture on the paste.
Next, cut the remaining lot of the paste into strips that are about half an inch wide. After that, lay them over the apple mixture in diamond shape that is about 1 inch apart from each other, forming a trellis-like arrangement of the pastry.
Next, bake the tart for 3/4 of an hour.
Finally, serve the tart with custard.
That is all for the recipe. Hope that it is useful for you.
