An apple a day


To be honest, I prefer chocolate to fruits but when it comes to apples I completely understand why Eva took a risk with her place in paradise. I would have chosen the apple above that Adam guy too.

Apples are great to experiment with. Of course there´s nothing wrong with the standard apple pie but try to dip apple parts in a little melted chocolate. Let it harden for a few seconds and you can serve a completely different tea.

Or try my apple cake, click here for the recipe. 












I made one today and prepared a huge bowl of compote








Speaking of which: have you ever tried a variation of the sweet apple compote by using fresh green herbs? I recommend!

Ingredients:
1 kg of apples – goldreneits are the best, but if you dont mind some larger pieces you can practically use every kind of apple.
2 spoons of sugar
fresh thyme, rosemary and marjoram



Remove the skin from the apples.
Cut them into really small pieces.
Put the pieces into a pan and add the sugar.
Chop the herbs and add them to the apples.
Add some water or apple juice, make the whole lot boil then lower the fire and let simmer for a least an hour.
Let them cool down.

Serve the apples with thin sliced veal or pork chop or a not too strong cheese, like a provolone dolce.


Sweet variation:
1 kg of apples – goldreneits are the best, but if you dont mind some larger pieces you can practically use every kind of apple.
2 spoons of sugar
1 spoon of cinnamon
2 spoons of honey

Remove the skin from the apples and cut them into small pieces. Put everything into a pan add a little water, applejuice or calvados. Make it boil, then lower the fire and let simmer for at least one hour.


The sweet versions goes very well with goat cheese.
