Poutine a Trous

Acadians from all regions made this dish; considered an upper-class dish, it was done with whole apples or cut up apples depending on where you were from and how your mother felt that day. If the apples were to be cut up, they were peeled and diced, and raisins and cranberries were added to the sugar butter mixture. If they used whole apple they would peel the apples, precook them and core them adding brown sugar and cinnamon to the hole, then cap and cook.
