Sweet Potato Pie

*This is not sweet potato pie, I assure you, but that is what the recipe in “The Attic Cookbook called it. The Attic Cookbook: A treasury of rare old recipes – the kind that might be found in your great-grandmother’s attic”

6 sweet potatoes

6 tart baking apples

1 c. white wine

1/4 c. sugar

1/4 c. melted butter

Directions: 

Cook, peel and slice the potatoes. Peel and slice the apples. Butter bottom and side of casserole. Arrange sliced sweet potatoes and apples in alternate layers in casserole. Mix wine, sugar and melted butter together. Pour over mixture. Sprinkle top with a little grated nutmeg. Bake in covered casserole as is, or if desired, cover with a rich pastry crust. Bake until apples are tender, about 45 minutes.

*NOTE: I did half this recipe and put it in a pie pan, so I guess I really failed on the recipe, perhaps in a casserole pan it might have worked, but I still have my doubts.
