It’s like the scene in Anne of Avonlea where she is picking apples in the orchard before she meets Gilbert.



Apple Raisin Muffins By Paula Deen

1 cup water
2 cups sugar
2 cups grated apples
2 cups raisins
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons baking soda
31/2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the water, sugar, apples, raisins, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and cool completely.
In a large bowl, stir the nuts and baking soda into the flour. Add the cooled mixture to the bowl, and stir until blended. Fill greased miniature muffin tins with batter to the top. Bake for 15 minutes.
Yields about 5 dozen miniature muffins


Have a great weekend my friends!

I love anything apple in the Fall, Deserae, and if it's coming from Paula Deen.....all the better. I love her!

I'm settling in my new home, and it's been such a hectic week, but feeling very grateful, and catching up with my favorite blog friends. :~)

Have a peaceful weekend.
