Pratie Apple


  • 4 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
  • 6 (about 3 pounds) Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
