a season for apples.

October 8, 2012

baked apple Yesterday was one of those blustery days that requires a little more than the usual sweatshirt to feel cozy. Mid-morning, we turned on the oven to bake apples and to keep the chill out. We sat on the couch wrapped in blankets and scraped caramelized sugars from the bottom of our pans. Later, there was roasting butternut squash for a Canadian Thanksgiving dinner with friends and shaking our woollen coats from their winter storage for our walk to their house. Autumnal merry-making. baked apple again

    Can you please share your recipe for these apples? They look fantastic!

      for what it's worth:

      core the apple
      add a small slice of butter into the spot where the core was…
      add a scoop of pear jam (if you don't have any, you could just add some brown sugar)
      sprinkle with cinnamon
      bake until soft (i baked mine for about 30 mins–hence the split skin)!

      it's more of a wing it/let the spirit move you kind of recipe than anything else!

    this all sounds so cozy and autumnal! I really am a bit jealous – it's just coming into spring here in Australia.

    Yum! I recently had one at a restaurant and it was filled with almond paste and served with cinnamon ice-cream. So good! Instant autumn feeling.
