Will our picking adventures ever end?
Hey, we still have a month or so of summer and you know what Proverbs says about storing up for winter!:)
The kids were in charge of picking up the windfall apples.
Oh, and tasting them!
Good thing these were the sort outs!:)
Here is an apple recipe we made this week. One of our favorites!
from What's Cooking America (my favorite cookbook that I bought as a teenager while delivering berries)
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 eggs, beaten and room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk, room temperature
7 tablespoons butter
1-2 green tart cooking apples, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In a large bowl, combine eggs, salt, flour, and milk; Beat until batter is smooth.
In a large, heavy ovenproof frying pan or a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt butter, turning pan to cover sides. Add apples and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Stir and let cook for 5 minutes.
Pour batter over apples into pan and bake 25 minutes or until puffed above sides of the pan and lightly browned. Remove by flipping upside down onto a serving platter (apples and cinnamon will be on top). Serve immediately.
We like to have this recipe with a side of breakfast sausage as the apple pancake is fairly sweet!
