Apples

There is an apple tree outside my kitchen window. It does not belong to anybody, so anybody who lives in this building is entitled to the apples.
Yesterday, I was looking up at the high branches and thinking, what nice apples are up there. Such a pity I cant reach them.
Today, I looked out the window and saw that a huge branch had been broken of the tree. Isnt wish powerful.
Anyway, now I have lots and lots of apples.
So, I am looking for suggestions about what to cook,with them. If u have any, I would love to hear them. They are tart apples.

Mel

This a a quick and delicious recipe. I make it with macs but you can use any apple.


Apple Squares

1 C Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/4 C Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 Eggs
3/4 C Chopped Nuts
3 Macintosh Apples, diced


Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Grease a 8”x8” pan.

Mix all the ingredients together and pour into the pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Cool and cut into squares.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

I chop up an apple and saute it in butter. Toss on some brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. A great topping for waffles.

What else can I do with apples? Baked,(don't even have a simple recipe for that) tart, then what? I have lots of cooking apples, but no idea how to use them just like you Mel. Could anyone post recipes please. TNT would be great. Thanks a million in advance. I also have plums, but that's a different thread!

hey mel, how about coring, skinning, and slicing them into 1/4 inch disks, then frying them in 1/2 stick of butter until just beginning to become soft with slightly thinner sliced onions. layer in the bottom of a baking dish, and pre-heat oven to 350.

next, in the same frying pan brown 2 pork tenderloins on all sides in evoo and butter, place pork atop the onions/apples, deglaze the pan with some white wine or water or chicken stock, pour over pork/onions/apples.

finally, spread a good layer of wholegrain dijon mustard over the pork loins, sprinkle with fennel seeds and press them into the mustard.

bake uncovered for 20 - 40 minutes (depending on the size of the tenderloins), or until the pork is 145 degrees in the center.

remove and slice tenderloins on a bias, plate onions and apples, place pork on top. reduce the remaining liquid a little and drizzle over top.

How about good, old fashioned, Apple Brown Betty?

TIP: For a an interesting flavor twist, replace the bread crumbs with crushed Post Grape Nuts Flakes.
