Grandma's Green Apple Pie
|Tart green apples||12 (Use Small And Hard Ones)|
|Granulated sugar||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|All purpose flour||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Ground cinnamon||1 Teaspoon|
|Ground cloves||1 Pinch|

Presoak a clay pot, top and bottom, in water for 10 minutes.
Core and peel the apples, slice them thin, and place in the bottom of the presoaked pot.
You should have about 5 cups of sliced apples.
Combine the sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, and cloves and pour over the apples.
Stir the contents of the pot so that all the apples are coated.
Cut the butter into small pieces and sprinkle over the apples.
Make the crust, roll it out, and shape it over the apples.
Cover the pot with the lid.
Place the pot in a cold oven.
Set the oven temperature at 480 degrees.
Cook for 45 minutes.
Check the pie for doneness, then remove the lid and return the pot to the oven for an additional 15 minutes to brown the crust.
Serve with a very sharp Cheddar cheese.
