In other bowl mix flour, sugar, and nutmeg then stir into fruit and let settle for 10 or so minutes. Put this all into the pie plate and dot the top with butter. With the other pastry, make a lattice top and put on your pie sealing and fluting the edges. You might want to cover the fluted edge with foil as this tends to burn if you don't.

Combine in a saucepan the following and cook until thick, stirring constantly:
3/4 c. sugar 3 Tablespoons cornstarch dash of salt 1 c. water 1 Tablespoon butter
When thick stir in 2-3 drops red food coloring.
