Apple Pie Upstate New York Recipe

Tuesday, January 1, 2013
The smell of apple pie baking is comforting and a heart warming experience of memories for me. Mom made everything from scratch, from the dough to the filling. The love she put into baking was extraordinary. I reminiscence on all those great years with her and although I can't get them back, the kitchen has rekindled many beautiful feelings of mom's presence while baking her recipes. This is one of her best pie recipes, I want to share with you, hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.


It so hard smelling this bake and not wanting to dig right in! The love for family, friend and homemade cherished memories are in this pie.

When we go home to visit my hometown, we go straight to the Orchards to buy our apples. Our favorite is McIntosh, a little tart but the perfect baking apple in my opinion but you choose whatever you like!

Homemade is the best!



We had trees growing in the backyard of McIntosh apples, a favorite tart apple that made the best pies, but they weren't always kept up every year and needed lots of care.


Lucky for us we had an abundance or apples to choose from being from Upstate New York to purchase.


Mom made so many fresh apple recipes, but this pie was a must have every fall during apple season.


Just thinking about it makes my mouth water for some.

When You Get a Great Deal On Apples



I got such a great deal on granny smith apples, I had to try them.


The pie was delicious, a little sweeter, but we all loved it.


McIntosh will always be my favorite but it doesn't matter.


Bake away whatever you have!

Upstate New York



My hometown Utica, New York was notated for great apple orchards.


We would buy bushels of them from the Twin Orchards in New Hartford every year.


There were so many kinds of apples.

My Favorite Apples



I love Rome apples, cortlands, Mcintosh and especially the crispin and macoun apples.


The apples were plentiful and inexpensive, mom would make lots of apple butters and applesauce with the bushels we bought.


Mom always made the best crust, then her filling was rich in cinnamon, brown sugar and butter.


I hate to say it, but the trees didn't bear as good of fruits, but we occasionally got a good year of fruits.

Loved our Orchards



We have many orchards there, one we lived near was Twin Orchards and they have every apple imaginable, we love fall for that reason.


You can't get any fresher than that! The pies always are the best made with fresh apples. He just couldn't wait for me to make one!

Suitcase was jam packed



Mu son missed the foods we grew up on too.


When we moved to Florida no one even heard of some of the foods we loved like tomato pie, turkey joints or hard crusted Italian bakery breads.


Chad hadn't been back home in 16 years so he filled up his suitcase with everything and anything he could fit!

Local Specialties



My son Chad brough me lots of foods back when he came back from vacationing in Utica NY, he brought me the NY State Apples, some Tomato Pie from Napolis'.


I do make my own recipe for tomato pie, but there's always that one you grew up with that brings back awesome memories and that taste isn't duplicated.

Oh What Are Turkey Joints?



A crispy coated chocolate and hazelnut candy!


Made special right in Rome, New York.


These are a delicious candy we love made in Rome N.Y. called Turkey Joints.


Another treat he brought back for me we had every year at Christmas.

He devoured this pie!



Chad just leave us a taste!


It wasn't even cooled off yet and he just dove right in! Not much was left for the rest of us.

Best Pie Ever



All I could do is smile, as he never even looked up and just kept eating!


Thanks Chad, I loved everything from our home town and it made a special Christmas for all of us to have these again.


As, promised here is his pie he wanted with the apples he brought back.


That was a pretty heavy load to carry on the plane in his carry on bag!


Happy New Year 2011, we wish you all the best that the new year can bring to you and your family!
