This recipe was given to me by my sister Penny. It is easy to make and children really love it. Who doesn’t love carrots and tomato soup. Great for barbecues and a great salad to serve at Easter.

My grandmother Jennie Schilde was always baking. Coming from a Dutch family the day revolved around hearty meals and wonderful baked goods. My fondest childhood memories were of the tradition of coffee time in the mid morning and tea time mid afternoon… This recipe is an easy apple pie recipe that she often served in the fall with the abundance of apples from Sharon orchards. It was a staple for coffee or tea time. This recipe has become a tradition in my Sunnycrest family and we use it often for Birthdays and holidays as it is easy to prepare and serve.

Our Grandfather Milton O Schilde was a firm believer in the healing properties of Apple Cider Vinegar and honey. He took the tonic faithfully every day! We have carried on this tradition of all natural cider vinegar that we make on the farm. We have created our own version by infusing the vinegar with berries and then adding the raw honey to create a fabulous mixture for our daily switchel drink.
