SiljaSilja is an herbal witch who grew up in rural Ireland, where her mum had an herb garden and taught Silja about herbalism and foraging for Mother Nature's bounty. As a witch, she has led a Celtic training coven in Ireland, but now lives in the U.S. with her husband and three kids in Arkansas. Silja is the author of The Green Wiccan Herbal . 

My husband actually calls this an apple quiche, due to its eggy nature. Feel free to change the name if you like!

Sage and Basil Apple Tart 

• 3 medium-size sweet apples
• 9-inch pie crust (I use shortcrust pastry, although I am sure other doughs would also work. Graham crust might be nice!)
• 1/2 tablespoon sweet sage (My favorite sage is honeydew melon sage. I also recommend pineapple sage.)
• 1/2 tablespoon basil (Any kind of basil works, although I like to use lemon or sweet basil)
• 1/2 cup almond slivers
• 1 1/2 cups condensed milk
• 3 eggs
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon nutmeg
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
•  Pinch of salt
• 1/3 cup melted butter
• 1 tablespoon tart apple juice

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
