Personal Notes:
I could not let this cookbook go to print without adding one of my all time favorites. Fried Apple pies. We had an old apple tree that bore apples in June. We called it the "June apple'' tree. We would pick the apples and apples and grandma would peel, and slice them then put them on the tin roof to dry out. This was a wonderful way to store the apples for the winter. We waited in anticipation for the first fried apple pies. My grandma made them just perfect.
