Recipe With a History, January 1995
Enjoy it as Saturday night supper on a cold winter day. It's a delicious
stick-to-your-ribs meal.


  • potatoes
  • salt and pepper
  • ham or Canadian Bacon
  • apples
  • light brown sugar
  • a few pats of butter
  • 1/2 cup water


Scrub some potatoes (do not peel). Slice them about 1/8-inch thick, salt and pepper them, and then layer them in the bottom of a large skillet that has a cover. Then cover the layer of potatoes with slices of ham or Canadian bacon. Core some apples (do not peel). Slice them about 1/2 inch thick, then place them in a layer covering the ham. Sprinkle light brown sugar on top of the apples and add a few pats of butter. Continue making layers, finishing with ham. Add 1/2 cup water to skillet. Cover and cook 1/2 to 3/4 hour on stove's burner.

Serve in the skillet on the table, along with bread and butter. Irish bread would also be a good companion for this hearty meal. Enjoy!

    Add apple cider or juice instead of water. Let the bottom caramelize! Yummy!!
