pine nuts
1/2 cup
brown sugar
1 dash

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Peel and cut potatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Boil them uncovered until nearly done (just tender). Drain.

Meanwhile, boil the apple slices until nearly tender in very little boiling water. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.

Sprinkle pine nuts all over pan; put some under the apples and potatoes. Pour in the reserved cooking water from the apples. Squeeze lemon juice over everything. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar and the cinnamon, cumin, salt, and pepper on top. Dot with butter.
