Our apple tree is in over-achiever mode this year. Yesterday, we picked a handle-breaking basket-load of fruit. Personally, I don't really care that much for applesauce, unless it's sharing the plate with some sour cream and crispy potato pancakes. Thus, I am presented with the challenge to transform our bounty of sweet (and slightly mealy) apple goodness into not just apple mush, but something elegant and tasty.
Since I don't have much of a sweet tooth I am thinking of at least one possible combo: roasted with bacon, blue cheese, walnuts and....?
Technicalities aside, I love the fact that I can walk out into my yard and go "shopping" for fruit like this.
Let the cooking (and eating) begin...
