Recipe: Mud Apples

Going back to the pioneer theme, here's a recipe... well, more of instructions ... of how to bake an apple with just a fire and mud. Native Americans used to do this ... more or less.

1 large apple
thick mud
roaring fire

Apply a thick coat of mud (about an inch thick) around the apple. Once you have some coals in the fire, scoop some off to the side. Carefully bury the mud-coated apple in the coals. "Bake" for about 45 minutes - long enough to dry the mud and cook the apples. Carefully scrape away the coals and take out the mud apples. Knock the dry mud off of half, discarding that side of the apple skins. That leaves a kind of bowl. Spoon up the pulp for a delicious treat.
