Apple Pie; how to keep the sliced apples from shriveling up?
Cooking in sugar tends to draw the moisture out of the apple and you end up with slim dried out slivers!! I have had the same trouble if I cook carrots or sweet potatoes in the sugar! To prevent the carrots and sweet potatoes, I cook them separately and at the last minute I add the cooked sugar syrup! But am at a loss as how to make the apples in a pie that does not shrivel up!
