Manager of Historic Trades, Sam Murphy, shares with us his recipe for "Onion Pie" 


 4 small Yukon Gold potatoes 2 large Granny Smith apples 2 medium yellow onions 8 large eggs 3 tsp. Kosher salt 1 tsp. freshly cracked pepper 1⁄2 to 1 grated nutmeg 1⁄2 to 1 tsp. mace 4 oz. butter frozen puff pastry or homemade pie crust 

 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 2. Boil and slice the eggs. 3. Pare and slice the potatoes, apples and onions. Slice everything 1⁄4 inch thick. Place the apples and potatoes in a bowl of water to prevent oxidation. 4. Roll out the bottom crust and set it into the pie pan. 5. Mix the salt, pepper, nutmeg and mace to together in a single bowl. 6. Drain and dry the apples and potatoes with a towel. 7. Begin the layers from the bottom up with potatoes, then eggs, then apples and then onions. Sprinkle each layer with a little of the seasoning and little bits of butter. Continue filling and seasoning the pie until you are out of ingredients. 8. Put a top crust on the pie and crimp the edges. Cut 4 or 5 slashes on top crust to allow steam to vent out. 9. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is a nice golden brown.
