5 1/2 to 7 1/2 pounds of tart apples peeled, cored and
sliced thin.  (I always use a mixture of apples)
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup cornstarch
2 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
10 cups cold water

Blend sugar,cornstarch,salt, and cinnamon in a large
kettle,    Slowly stir in the cold water and let this
mixture cook on low heat until consistency of soft
gel.   Stir well to keep smooth. Add apples, lemon
juice and some yellow food coloring if you wish.

Pack into hot sterilized jars making sure apples are
covered well with the liquid gel, make sure there are
no air bubbles.

Process in water bath for 25 minutes. 1 quart makes 1
9 inch pie.
After all this I use packaged pie crust because my
homemade pie crust really is the pits.

Lemon-Lime Cheesecake   
(Shirley Stutz)

Toasted Coconut Crust OR Wafer Crumb Crust:  (depends on if allergies to coconut)
(I used the coconut and that was wonderful)
2 cups shredded coconut  OR 2 cups of wafer crumbs
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp butter  OR more if using wafer crumbs
1/2 tsp grated lemon peel
toss together wafer crumbs/sugar/ butter and peel.  Spread evenly in lightly greased 10" springform pan, patting down lightly.  Bake in
preheated 350 degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly toasted around edges.

Cream Cheese Filling:
3  - 250 g pkg Philadelphia Cream Cheese (room temperature)  
(I interpreted this as 3 large Ph. Cr. Ch.)
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp grated lemon peel
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lime juice
pinch salt
Work cheese in electric mixer until fluffy and smooth.  Blend in sugar, then eggs, one at a time.  Add peel, juices and salt.  Pour over
toasted crust, smoothing the top.  Return to 350 degree oven for 35 minutes or until firm almost to the center.  Remove from oven. Set
cake pan on rack to cool completely.  Run a knife around the cheesecake filling when cooled a bit.

Lemon-Lime Curd Topping:
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp coarsely grated lemon and lime peel
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp butter
shredded coconut or strips of candied lemon/lime peel for garnish.

Whisk eggs until foamy.  Combine with sugar, grated peel, juices and butter in a heavy non-aluminum saucepan.  Cook over
medium/low heat, stirring frequently, or whisking if necessary, until smooth, honey-like and thickened, about 6 - 8 minutes.  Remove
from heat to cool.  If making Curd Topping ahead of time, store in airtight container in refridgerator.  Just before serving, spread in an
even layer on cheesecake.       Makes 10 - 12 servings.

Please note:  I made a couple changes.  I do not own a springform pan, so I baked it in a long 9 x 13" pyrex baking dish.  The day I
intended to serve it, I put the curd on top of the cheesecake, rather than trying to put it on as I served it.
7 Layer Salad
(Shirley Stutz)

1 head lettuce
1 head of cauliflower
1 large sweet onion (slice and ring)
1 lb. bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
8 oz. sharp cheddar, grated

Layer in large bowl; mix dressing and add and toss when you are ready to serve.  Some layer these two ingredients when
the rest are prepared.  I prefer to add just before serving.  I also toss so all ingredients are covered with dressing; some
layer ingredients in long dish and serve without tossing.

Dressing   (very complicated, only for the most astute)
1 cup Miracle Whip
1/2 cup sugar

(If the lettuce and cauliflower are very large, the dressing must be increased a little bit.  This salad can be adjusted and
other items used, some of the above eliminated.  It's still good.)

For amount yielded, you saw the size of my container, and I used exactly what I stated above.  My head of lettuce was
very large and very solid, so quite a big quantity.  Same for the cauliflower.

What I don't like about my method of tossing together with the dressing:  the leftover does not keep very well.  All the
ingredients stay nice except lettuce goes wimpy.  So if I am making a large bowl, and don't need that much for a meal, I
remove half and use only half of the dressing.  The rest will stay nice for a limited number of days.
Ham Balls   (Shirley Stutz)
1 onion                    2/3 C. milk
2 1/2 lb. ham mix (2 parts ham to 1 part lean pork)
1 C. dry bread crumbs          2 eggs

Mix together, make into whatever size balls you want.  They will shrink a little.  I had walnut size Saturday, but for my tribe I make
them a little smaller than a baseball.

Sauce for Ham Balls
1 1/2 C brown sugar                  1/2 C vinegar
1 tsp. dry mustard                       1/2 C. water
(If I don't have dry mustard, I substitute French yellow mustard)

Boil dressing, add 1 C. tomato juice.  Pour over ham balls.   Bake 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.  Half way through baking time, I turn
the ham balls over.

This recipe is what I always use, except Saturday.  I thought the mix looked good in the meat counter and since I had never tried
it, decided to get enough for one recipe and would make it up on family night.  Then I got nervous that maybe I wouldn't have
enough meat with just the Ohioish meat balls, so made up the mixture.  Actually, I thought they were ok, but still prefer my recipe
