The original bakers would have soaked the apples
in whiskey or brandy and added sugar and spices —
and maybe some lemon —
and baked the pie in a Dutch oven.
A Bit of Colonial Baking Trivia...
In Colonial times, how could one tell the temperature of the oven?
Well, in Colonial times, there were no thermometers to tell you what the temperature of the oven was. So, the women would use what's called the "counting method". This method is when you put your arm in the oven and count to how long you can keep your arm inside. The amount of seconds tells you whether it is a quick oven, a moderate oven or a slow oven.
