Apple Pie; how to keep the sliced apples from shriveling up? Answered
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!
