"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

*Quick Tip*

Make sure you do not add your apple pieces to the sugar mixture until you have the bottom crust in place!

If you add the apples to the sugar mixture to early the sugar will pull the moisture out of the apples and your filling might become more watery than expected!
