“Apple lemon ginger juice is one of my addictions. I have been looking for an apple pie recipe that just clicks for me and I am getting a little tired of the same ole-same ole thing so I decided to give myself a little creative leeway and combine a few ideas together and see what happens. I didn't expect the result I got and find it hard to believe this beautiful yummy came out of my kitchen. It was amazing and gone in a flash. Wish I could have taken a picture of this beauty! Unfortunately, you will have to rely on your imagination! A couple of things to note. Slice and peel the apples according to your taste. I like small pieces and no peels. Also the lemon powder I used is True Lemon Crystallized Lemon. Using this allows you to get a tangy lemon flavor without adding excess moisture. The glaze caramelizes beautifully over the lattice and adds a touch of tang. Since I have only made this once, I look forward to your feedback. Hope you enjoy!”
