RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
BAKED APPLES AND PRUNES, American
Core the apples then pare them about ½ of the way down from the stem end, and arrange in a shallow baking dish. Boil the 1 c. sugar and the water together for 10 min. Pour over the apples. Bake in a moderate oven of 350° for about 1 hr., or until tender, basting frequently. Insert a cooked prune in the top of each apple; sprinkle the peeled surface of each with 1 tsp. sugar. Place the pan of apples under the broiler heat. Baste them frequently and watch them carefully until the sugar has melted and the peeled section is a delicate brown. Serve hot or cold, with plain or whipped cream. Serves 6. To serve 2 or 3, make ½ this recipe.

I would like to thank Newspaperarchive for putting together such a fabulous service, and placing our Nation's history right at our fingertips. Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
