Culinary Conversation: Autumn means time for apple treats



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the raisins, water and juice in a saucepan and heat over medium heat for 5 minutes.

Combine the sugars, cornstarch, spices and salt in a bowl, mixing all the time. Add this mixture to the heating raisins.

Cook and stir this until the mixture starts to bubble. Add the vinegar, walnuts and butter, and heat until the butter is melted. Cool until just warm.

Pour into the prepared shell and top with the second pastry crust. Bake 25 minutes or until golden. Cool.
