Anna Lappé’s ‘Green’ Apple Pie

November 18th, 2009

I’ve been diving back into my dog-eared Joy of Cooking lately, giving these tried-and-true recipes little eco-twists along the way. For Thanksgiving this year, I’m bringing the apple pie, made from Joy’s simple recipe with a few tweaks.

November 18th, 2009

The chefs at the Farm Stand use whole-wheat pastry flour and rolled oats in lieu of refined white flour whenever possible in our recipes. Creating a delicious-tasting, light and workable pastry crust was a challenge, but we think the result is spectacular.

These waxes are really difficult to remove and are absorbed into the squash’s otherwise delicious flesh — Myra Goodman
