Heaven And Earth (Himmel und Erde)

This is an old German farm recipe of mashed potatoes (from earth) and apples (from heaven).

6 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered 
4 tart apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
Salt, to taste
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground pepper
5 rashers bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a medium saucepan cook the potatoes and apples in a salted water until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain. Mash until smooth and creamy. Add butter, sugar, pepper, and more salt (if needed). Mix well. Before serving, sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
