    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 1/2 cups California raisins
    • 1 cup water
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoon flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 4 cups pared and diced apple (4 to 6 apples)
    • Pastry for 9-inch two-crust pie
    • 1 lightly beaten egg
    • Sugar, as needed

    PROCEDURE

    In large saucepan, boil raisins and water until liquid is almost absorbed, about 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Stir into raisin mixture with lemon juice and apples. Turn into pastry-lined pie pan. Cover with top crust, cutting slits for steam to escape. Brush with egg and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in preheated 425°F oven for 10 minutes; reduce heat to 350°F and bake 45 to 55 minutes longer, or until pastry is golden brown and apples are tender. Serve warm or cold.
