I love fresh fruit from an orchard and had been looking for a source for apples, when I found honeycrisp.com.
The apples in the image above were shipped to me in October. Yes, 4 months ago. I ordered a bushel. I was saving these to take with us on our month of travel in January, but they got left behind. I wasn’t sure what condition they’d be in, but they’ll be pie filling and apple sauce by day’s end.
But FIRST, an Apple Dutch Baby
Apple Dutch Baby
4 Tbsp butter
2-3 Gala apples sliced thinly (I used Honeycrisp)
3/4 C flour
3/4 C milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 C sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400.
Place butter into a 12″ cast iron frying pan and place in the oven to melt butter.
In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk and eggs.
Place the sliced apples into the bottom of the pan on top of the melted butter. Pour egg mixture over apples.
Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the egg mixture evenly.
Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
This handy device makes quick work of the coring, peeling and slicing. Just love it. It’s made by Cucina Pro.
I made two batches of apple pie filling but decided to freeze them.
And last but not least, the Instapot No Peel Apple sauce.
