What to do with our apples?
I have become a cookery writer, a role not totally suited to me as I know next to nothing about cooking. Still …
Last week I mentioned the bucket of apples from our garden Sue had picked and I had sorted. OK, I was going to write about it “tomorrow” but as we all know tomorrow never comes and things got in the way, so here we are.
I must confess, most of the apples are still in a yellow bucket waiting for something to happen. But I did bake a tray of cinnamon apples which I’ve now eaten, and they were delicious. I say “I’ve now eaten” because no one else seems to have got any.
About the baking there’s not much to say. I found a recipe online, followed the recipe, sliced the apples and baked them for the requisite hour. I found the recipe on allrecipes.com. It’s basically:
- Heat the oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F if you’re one of those quaint Americans)
- Throw some cinnamon in a bowl with some sugar and mix it together
- Slice the apples, chuck the cinnamon sugar over them, shoogle it all up and shove it in the oven
- Pull it out 30 mins later
If you ever want to make sugar more interesting just add some cinnamon, it works wonders.
