Hi, I am new here, and I found your website by Googling for a 4-H Apple Crisp recipe.  That took me to a blog(?) posting from Ramona about a 4-H apple crisp recipe that she had written down so she would not lose it.  Well, I meant to do the same thing, but I had the 4-H cookbook that it was in, “Meals in Minutes” that was used at least 30 years ago, and I didn’t worry.  MY HUSBAND WAS CLEANING,AND HE TOSSED OUT MY COOKBOOK!!!!!.  No, I didn’t divorce him, I have almost 40 years invested.  But now I cannot find my recipe.  I thought I would never forget that recipe, but I have.  I know that it had oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, butter, (or margarine), and fresh apples in it.  I am almost positive that “Ramona” has the recipe, but I cannot figure out how to contact her asking her for it.  Can someone help me?  Please?  My family loves this, and even though it has been at least 10 years since I made it, of course, now that it is lost, they want it.  Help me

I just got the name of the topic where Ramona commented on this.  County 4-H Youth Fair Proud.  This is her complete comment:

Nice to see a young man cook. When my son David was in 4-H, he took apple crisp to the fair. He was 8 years old. Just this week I was chatting with a new friend. She brought up that she wished she could find the recipe for the apple crisp that used to be in the 4-H cookbook. I said I have it. I had copied in onto a recipe card in case I lost the book one day. I call it David’s grand champion apple crisp. David is 41 this month. My daughter in law was with us as we were discussing the recipe. She also asked me for the recipe. Just goes to show, recipes never go out of style.

Thank you for your recipe, but I am trying to find the one that Ramona mentions in a blog replay in “County 4-H Fair Proud.  This is a recipe that I have been trying to hunt down for ages.  I know that it calls for raw apples, but you can used canned apples if you wish. I know it has flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter in the crisp, and you can melt the butter so that it is easier, then place the crisp ingredients in the fridge to harden and then place on the apples.   I know that you put some butter and spices, like cinnamon and nutmeg on the apples, and either toss with the spices, and then place apples in the baking dish and dot with butter. Some of these are my own changes.  I just need the proper measurements of oats, flour, and brown sugar, and some white sugar for the crisp.   I am making a family cookbook and want to give this recipe the proper credit, and make sure that it has the right ingredients. 


Ramona, please contact me!  PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE!  wavechef
