Apple Raisin Nut Muffins

4 cups tart apples, peeled and diced (I like Granny Smith)
1 cup white sugar
1-1/2 cups raisins
1-1/2 cups walnuts, chopped
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt

In a medium bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir with wire whisk. Set aside. In a separate small bowl, beat together eggs, oil and vanilla. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine apples, sugar, raisins and nuts. Combine well. Gently add liquid mixture to apple mixture. Lastly, carefully fold in dry mixture. Do not over-mix. Mixture will be thick and full of apples. Fill 18 greased muffin cups to the top. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Serve with soft butter. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen muffins
