1/2 cup apple juice

A wonderful old fashioned wintery dish:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all the ingredients and dot the top with butter. Bake about 30-45 min until apples are tender.
Feel free to substitute other fruits, adjust the spices or change the sweetness.
The same ingredients can be stewed in a saucepan on top of the stove without the flour for a delicious stewed fruit dish.
Make an oatmeal crumb crust and turn this into a cobbler or crisp style dessert.
Serve over ice cream, pound cake, pancakes or waffles or with buttered toast points.
Makes a good side dish for pork, ham, wild birds and tongue with perhaps a little chutney stirred in.
