What is this lovely mixed grill we have? We have:
Yesterday the Kronk, tomorrow your grandma’s grave: Scrap-metal thieves target grave markers.
And finally, a recipe. This was sent to me from someone who attributes it to her “Michigan cousins.” If you believe, as I do, that recipes are a form of anthropology, well, many things about Michigan will reveal themselves to you in just a few short lines. So enjoy…
Caramel apple salad
1 cup sugar
1 tbs. flour
1 heaping tbs. cornstarch
4 tsp vinegar
1 – 20 oz can crushed pineapple (or tidbits)
Cook until thickens (continue to stir so that it will not burn). Cool completely (if you are in a hurry, place the pan in the freezer and stir periodically to reduce cooling time). Sauce can be made the night before and refrigerated until you’re ready to mix the salad.
5-6 cubed Granny Smith apples
1 cup chopped Snickers candy bars or crushed Heath candy bars or peanuts
1 – 8 oz carton Cool Whip
Cool Whip — the secret weapon of every Midwestern cook’s larder.
