Directions:

  1. Peel the potatoes, halve lengthwise, and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Measure the potatoes; there should be 5 cups. Adjust the amount if necessary.
  2. Peel the apples, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Measure the apples; there should be 3 cups. Adjust the amount if necessary.
  3. Coat a 2-quart casserole dish with nonstick butter-flavored cooking spray, and spread half of the potatoes over the bottom of the dish. Top with half of the apples and half of the raisins. Repeat the layers.
  4. Place all of the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved. Pour the juice mixture over the casserole. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, and, using a sharp knife, cut four 1-inch slits in the foil to allow steam to escape.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour, or until all of the layers are tender. Serve hot.
