    if you pay more taxes the government can stop the use of oil and coal and prevent greenhouse gas accumulation.

    I agree with Fred. Last night was the exception, just the right amount.

    Yep. Thunder is fun, although it can be a bit frightening sometimes.

    And another earthquake! Looks like the same spot as two weeks ago. I felt it in Willow Creek.

    This blog site is going down hill. A whole topic on the weather following a topic on a small earthquake ?

    How about a topic on Grandma’s apple pie ?

    What have you heard about Grandma’s apple pie? I’m concerned!

    Just what is it about being in and part of a isolated and provincial place that bothers you HiFi? Do you have delusions of grandeur, believing the larger world cares a fig aboput what you think or do?? Oh yeah, my bad. I forgot what you really are.

    Crostata di mele

    For the Crust
    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
    • 10 tablespoons butter, chilled and diced
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1/4 cup white wine, chilled
    For the filling:
    • 4 tablespoons apricot jam
    • 3 large apples, peeled, halved, cored, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices (Honey Crisps are nice)
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 5 tablespoons of sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
    • Confectioner’s sugar, for garnish
    Make the crust:
    • Mix the flour, sugar, salt, together well.
    • Cut in the butter and lemon zest ‘til the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    • Add the wine and egg yolk and mix ‘til the mixture begins to clump together in a dough ball.
    • Place the dough onto a work surface and flatten into a disk.
    • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour to thoroughly chill.
    Make the filling:
    • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    • Combine the sugar, flour, and cinnamon and set aside.
    • Toss the apples with the lemon juice.
    • Add the sugar mixture to the apples, mixing well.
    Assemble and bake the crostata:
    • Place a sheet of parchment paper on the counter
    • Roll the dough out to a 12 inch circle.
    • Spread the jam on the dough, leaving a 3 inch margin around the edges.
    • Mound the apples on the jam.
    • Fold the edge of the dough over, overlapping and pinching the seams (creating an open faced fluted pie crust). You can also fold this in half like a big turn over and put slits in the top.
    • Using the parchment paper to help with the transfer, slide the crostata onto a baking sheet.
    • Bake the crostata for 45 minutes, until the crust is browned and the apples are tender.
    • Allow to cool slightly.
    • Dust with confectioner’s sugar before serving.
    • Variations include additions of ginger, raisins, balsamic vinegar, Che Dolce Vita!

    if you don’t study the weather, then you’re doomed to repeat it.

    Looks like all of you that predicted Leap Year would fall on February 29th were ALL WET!

    Finally someone has the guts to bring this up! What I want to know is why does grandma use: “Granny Smith” apples in her pie when her name is: “Parish?” Huh? I know there’s something going on here. Who is this “Smith” person? What is their relationship to the pie in question? Why is the government covering it up?
