Ft Wayne, Indiana

Pops and I are in Fort Wayne, Indiana today. We will spend the night here. While researching the tea I found many fascinating things. There is a lot of history and industry here.
But the thing that caught my attention was this: it is the death and burial place of Johnny Chapman also known as Johnny Appleseed. Do your own Google search on him. He is quite a man.
I love apples. I eat one almost every single day.
I like all kinds of apples. It depends on if I'm just eating them or using them in a recipes as to which ones I choose. My favorite eating apple is the Jazz.

Easy Apple Crisp

What You'll Need:

1 package (8 ounces) corn bread stuffing
1 stick butter, melted
Grated rind of 1 orange
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup sugar, divided
4 1/2 cooking apples, peeled, cored, and thickly sliced
1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix the stuffing, butter, orange rind, nuts, spices, and 1/3 cup of the sugar. Set aside.

In another large bowl, mix the sliced apples, remaining 2/3 cup sugar, and water.

Pour apple mixture into a greased 9- x 13-inch baking pan. Spread crumb mixture evenly over apples.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are easily pierced and juices are bubbly. Serve warm or cold.
