Sprinkle the apples with the sugar, nutmeg, lemon juice and rind. Place alternate layers of apple and breadcrumbs (ending with a crust of crumbs) in a well buttered baking dish. Pour the hot water over the dish and bake for an hour in a slow oven (325 degrees F); uncover the dish for the last 10 minutes. Serve hot with a pitcher of rich cream or with hard sauce.
