Garlic (Allium sativum), a herb used widely as a flavoring in cooking, has also been used as a medicine throughout ancient and modern history to prevent and treat a wide range of conditions and diseases.

Garlic belongs to the onion genus Allium, and is closely related to the onion, rakkyo, chive, leek, and shallot. It has been used by humans for thousands of years and was used in Ancient Egypt for both culinary purposes and its therapeutic benefits.

Splendor Garden Apple Pie Filling

Apple season is here, and what a bountiful year for fruit!

If you have as many apples as we do you will be creating all kinds of apple treats. Our first creation is a good old fashioned Apple Pie, we used the Splendor Garden Apple Pie Spice and the Ceylon Cinnamon. It was fabulous, and has a unique flavour your palette will appreciate.


Splendor Garden Apple Pie

Splendor Garden Apple Pie filling (using tart apples)

12 cups apples quartered

2 cup brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

½ cup Minute Tapioca

1 tbsp. Splendor Garden Apple Pie Spice

1 tbsp. Splendor Garden Ceylon Cinnamon

Put ½ cup water in the bottom of a dutch oven , add apples and the rest of your ingredients. Cook at 300-350 degrees until the apples are soft, stirring continuously. Once the apples are soft the filling can be put into the pie shells or into containers to freeze and use at another time.

This recipe makes enough filling for 3 large or 4 small pies.

Note: You can cut back the sugar according to the sweetness of the apples. (We like to cut back the white sugar when possible.)
