Crabapple Pie

My neighbours Andrea and Max have a big crabapple tree that hangs into my yard, which is pretty convenient for me since I love crabapples. As a kid on the farm, I used to pick an ice cream pail of crabapples and eat them while watching Saturday cartoons. I've always had a sour tooth...

Crabapples make a really good pie. Sure, it takes a little more time to peel and chop a bunch of smaller apples, but well worth the effort.

As a bonus, I made the pie crust with fresh-off-the-farm cultured butter, provided by a fan of this blog. I've read that a lot of top chefs prefer the flavour of cultured butter. And I think my pie crust never tasted better.
