We’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market. Fresh this week: apples.
Turn a traditional apple crumble into a hand-held bar treat. Spread an apple butter and dried apple filling into an oat and flour base before scattering with streusel topping.
Rachel Allen makes a Dutch apple cake that features a sugary crust. The apples sink to the bottom of the cake as they bake leaving a light sponge on top.
Combine the classic flavors of salted caramel pot de cream and cinnamon apple cake into this new take on bread pudding. Serve the gooey pudding topped with bourbon-doused apples.
Caramelize Honeycrisp, Cortland, Spartan or Empire apples and spoon into puff pastry for Chuck Hughes' tender turnover that goes great with soft, fresh sheep's or goat's milk cheese, yogurt or ice cream.
Use Fuji or Gala apples to get the right texture. Since the cake should be tender, a tender-sweet apple is important. From the buttermilk batter to the deliciously nutty flavor the browned butter, this cake could become highly addictive.
Fill this French cake with eating apples that have been macerated in sugar, rum, orange flower water and lemon peel overnight so that they stay crisp and delicious.
Kelsey Nixon's 5-star apple crisp is a classic fall favorite. Sprinkle a toasted nut and oat topping over baking apples before baking until bubbling. Serve with warm vanilla bean ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
