Old Fashion Apple Pie

Independence Day is just around the corner and it reminds me of all things American!

When I was a child, before the days of VCRs, BluRays, and DVRs, we were forced to watch the commercials that interrupted our TV shows. I still remember many of them, especially the ones with catchy tunes or slogans.  Whether we buy their product or not, that proves we are influenced greatly by what we see and hear.  

Old Fashion Apple Pie reminds me of one such commercial.  Every time I think about it I remember a jingle from an old Chevrolet commercial that promoted all things American.  They sang a chorus about “Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet.  They go together in the Good Ol’ USA.”  

I decided to look around on the internet and see if I could find these commercials…sure enough, I did.  If you’re feeling nostalgic, or you’re too young to remember them, you can watch a couple.  Test Drive Junkie has the full collection of this campaign, but the 1975 and 1976 are my favorites.  Be warned…it’s a catchy tune and you may be singing for the rest of the day!  

Isn’t it true though?  

Baseball is called “America’s pass time” and who among us (Americans) hasn’t played a little baseball, if not on an organized team at least on the 4th of July or other picnic.    

Hot dogs – do they eat those anywhere else?  Oh, I know plenty of countries eat sausages but real hot dogs?  I don’t think so.  I know, I know, all you “healthy” people (no offense intended) out there are saying, “Ewww, do you know what’s in those things?”  To which  the rest of us respond, “No, and I don’t want to!  I like them.”  Hot dogs fall into under the category ALL THINGS IN MODERATION.

Chevrolet – It seems just about every American family at one time or another has owned a Chevrolet.  I know, many now (us included) own foreign cars but I know your parents or grandparents were loyal American car buyers.  

And of course, Apple Pie!  It just doesn’t get much more American than that!  So, as you head off to your 4th of July picnic in your Chevrolet (or whatever) to eat hot dogs and play baseball….here’s an Old Fashion Apple Pie recipe to take with you!

Here’s the Recipe:

4-6 Granny Smith apples

3/4 -1 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

3-4 slices butter or margarine

dash of salt

2 pie crusts

1 egg white and sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Peel apples and slice into wedges (about 8 pieces)

To keep them from turning brown fill a large bowl with cool water and sprinkle in some salt

As you cut the apples, place them in the water

They will not absorb and taste salty

    I absolutely love apple pie, and really do enjoy making it from scratch. I haven’t made one in like 5 years though…I think it’s time to change that. I LOVE the way the crust looks in the first image, it’s making me salivate.
