Apple pie
========= 2020-11-04


Comment: over the years, pie plates have decreased in diameter. From 32 cm in my youth, to 28 cm, and today, we even find 25 cm ones. All that to say that it will possibly take some adjustment to the amount of binding to be poured on the apples to avoid drowning them. As for Calvados, it's a nice touch although optional, but no problem with alcohol because after 30 minutes of cooking there is no more. For the apples, I cut them in 8 (more for larger ones) and I remove the core.
