Two of my fall faves are apples and pomegranates. There are lots of apple pie recipes out there, but I wanted something ... more. So, I played around with this recipe for apple pie, and came up with pomegranate apple pie!
Step 1: Ingredients
> 6 cups thinly sliced apples (for me this was 2 small and two large)
> 1/2 cup granulated sugar
> 1/4 cup flour
> 1/4 packed brown sugar
> 1/2 tsp cinnamon
> 1/4 tsp nutmeg
> dash or two of allspice
> dash of powdered ginger (not pictured)
> 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
> 1 pie crust
> topping (either pie crust or crumble)
> 1 tablespoon butter
> juice of one pomegranate (since I use fresh juice I never measure this ... 1/2 to 3/4 cup of store bought is probably plenty)

Need to know how to peel and juice a pomegranate? Gotcha covered there, too.
If you prefer a more traditional home made pie crust, this page looks helpful. I can't speak for accuracy or awesomeness of the recipes as I have not tried them, but it looks straightforward if you feel up to that sort of thing.
You will need a large-ish mixing bowl to combine your ingredients, and of course measuring spoons & cups and a sharp knife & cutting board.
You will be pre-heating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, but not yet.
