After watching the Food Network television show “Farmhouse Rules” the other day, I was inspired to bake a pie. So I decided to bake a homemade apple maple pie. I have baked this pie in the past, but this is the first time I have written down the recipe.
(Okay here is hoping that I have the proportions correct to give you for this recipe.)
9 inch vintage deep dish pie plate
Four or five large apples peeled, cored, sliced
Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, mace to taste
1 1/2 tablespoon of butter in little pieces
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup of flour
1/4 cup sugar
Couple tablespoons of apple cider
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoon sugar
8 tablespoons butter
6 to 7 tablespoons water
Assemble crust using pastry blender and wrap dough in Saran wrap and refrigerate for at least half an hour.
While crust is chilling, assemble filling.
You will have enough dough for a rolled out bottom layer crust and strips for lattice top. I’m using a slightly smaller than normal but deep pie plate. Use a pastry brush to brush the lattice strips with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Tip: I roll my piecrust out between sheets of Saran wrap or parchment paper.
Tip: after I have rolled my crust to the desired thickness and I have put it in my pie plate, I throw into the freezer for a few minutes to firm up before I fill with pie filling.
Heat oven to 425°. Bake pie on a cookie sheet to catch any spills. Bake 12 to 14 minutes at 425°, reduce oven to 350° and keep an eye on it and bake approximately 50 minutes more, or slightly less depending on your oven.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or thin slices of a good local cheddar cheese.
The vintage pie plate came from the Smithfield Barn.
Enjoy and happy baking!
Recently reported that Opera Mini will be present on device smartwatch Samsung Galaxy Gear S that runs on the Android platform Wear.
Although the smart watches Samsung Galaxy Gear S has had its own browser, but the presence of the Opera Mini browser will offer additional options for users of the Samsung smart watches when accessing web content on their wrist.
Moreover, because the smart watches Samsung Galaxy S has been crammed facilities Gear SIM card can access data independently.
Browser created by a software company based in Norway that has the Speed Dial feature that displays the bookmarks page website in the form of large icons so this feature will make it easier for users of smart watches to access a website with just one touch of a finger.
In the future, most likely the Opera Mini browser will also be present for other smartwatch devices running the Android operating system by using the Wear, but as yet no details about the news. Opera Mini for Samsung Galaxy Gear S will be pre-loaded in a specific area and can be downloaded for free via the browser at m.opera.com for which has had S. Gear
Smartwatch device users will also be easier to operate the browser Opera Mini on their wrist because Opera Mini version of smartwatch applications will support gesture commands such as double-tap or 'mecubit' screen (pinch-to-zoom) to zoom in and zoom out of the page, or slide your finger left or right to move to a web page which has been opened.
Another interesting thing, the browser Opera Mini also offers offline reading feature, where users can read web content that has been stored without requiring longer data access.
Previously, the browser Opera Mini also has a presence in various kinds of mobile platforms like J2ME, Symbian, BlackBerry OS, iOS and Android. No wonder if the browser made by Opera Software ASA is based in Norway is now available for the Android platform Wear, one of the platforms for wearable devices that will become more and more popular in the future.
We can not deny that despite technological trends have shifted to the adoption of smartphones, Opera Mini still get a place because of its compression technology. Opera Software CEO Lars Boilesen in a press release said, "The more the population of Indonesia is connected to the Internet through their devices, and we believe that the Opera Mini browser is the fastest and easiest to use are available in the market."
Opera findings stated that the average age of users of Opera Mini in Indonesia is 24 years, with 4 out of 10 users are still attending school or university. In addition, although still dominated by feature phone users, Opera Mini adoption of smartphones has remained in the realm of the fantastic.
There is a 154% increase for the use of smartphones, with the highest growth rate recorded by Android 156%, followed by iOS at 71%. Despite the popularity of BlackBerry continues to decline, it turns out the use of Opera Mini on this platform achieve increased 54% over the last year.

As we suspected earlier, the news portal to get the blessing throughout the implementation of this democratic party. Opera mentioned five news portals that are most frequently accessed Seconds, Coverage 6, Compass, Tribune News, and Independence.
Tribune News Coverage 6 and obtain the greatest improvement from the previous year. On average, every Android users in Indonesia in 1225 opened the page using Opera Mini to access the information during the presidential election.
Seeing segment Opera Mini users, I wonder if they are targeting the entry-level smartphone users with a monthly expenditure for data packets is not too large. Opera Mini compression capabilities that claimed up to 90% will allow consumers to access more pages with data consumption more efficient.
To reach more Indonesian people join online, Opera Director Asia Growth Ivollex Hodiny mention there are three strategies they do to invite non-users.
The strategy is a special data packet Opera Mini is affordable with mobile operators, in collaboration with partners including the scheme pre-installed with local smartphone vendors, and the presence of community meetup.

Augmented reality wearable device made to modify the real world with digital content. With it, it opens new possibilities in the field of entertainment as well as overhaul the way we get information. Google Glass is currently the most promising device wearable AR, but the alternatives made by Toshiba might be able to make consumers turn away.
In the event the annual Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies Japan, the company introduced a 3D TV ever 'glassesless' first in the world (RZ1) reveal a product in order to compete with Google's wearable AR Glass. The gadget was introduced with the name Toshiba Glass. Although essentially the same function, Toshiba brings a different approach to the display technology of augmented reality glasses another.
In Google Glass, there is an extra lens as a medium channeling object to the AR content that you see. Clear cube that serves to reflect the results of the projection so that the eyes can see. The concept is still held by Toshiba, but the execution is seamless. Instead of using an external lens, the reflector integrated into the lens of the glasses to the right.
That is, no additional lens that interfere with the user's view, and you are not the center of attention. When he switched off, it feels just like wearing regular glasses. When viewed more closely in a particular angle, it will look fine incisions in the lens to reflect projections. When turned on, you immediately see virtual images floating in front of the eye - such as Google Glass.
According to the tester, the result image is not as sharp as Thoshiba Glass competitor's product, and a new look up if you are in a dimly lit room. The producers still need to find a method that Toshiba Glass can deliver results on a picture perfect sunny conditions. But without the external reflector, Toshiba admirable achievement.
Toshiba Glass requires a constant connection to your smartphone. He has fewer features than the Google Glass because of the lack of a camera. Basically, this device only transmits the handset to view content. The biggest drawback is the lack of wireless connectivity - the smartphone and Toshiba Glass must be connected via a cable.
Interestingly, the cable connection is the solution to the problem battery performance wearable device from Toshiba. The reason, the built-in battery is claimed to make the Google Glass becomes heavy. Will be available three models of Toshiba Glass: standard, sporty and industrial (a la glasses lab). He promised present in the next year at a price much cheaper than the Google Glass - currently priced at $ 1,500.
