Fruit Crisp

Photos to be added later….

A recipe adapted from America’s Test Kitchen (2001/2015), Apple Crisp .

I call it the crust less crumb top apple pie. Any other suitable fruit can be used.

In addition, cardamom , allspice and cloves (ground) was added (to taste) to the topping ingredients.

Also  the quantity of ingredients of the topping, ( less the butter) is doubled and 1/2 reserved for later use.

1 and 1\ 2 cup all purpose flour

6 oz pecans, chopped fine

1 and 1/2 cups oats

1 cup light brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

Ground all spice to taste

Ground cloves to taste

1 teaspoon salt you may lessen if using salted butter.

Divide and Reserve 1/2 of the above for later use, it is easy to store in a baggie or mason jar  and will quicken future recipes.

Cut in to the remaining 1/2 , 1 stick butter ( unsalted )

The filling : I’m using a combo of 4131 Fuji and 4130 Cripps Pink, about 3 of each variety

Less the apple cider, (none available) the apples were cooked partly in a skillet with butter, there was plenty of juice released from the apples.

Sprinkle the partially cooked apples  with the topping,  if the butter wasn’t cut in, just cut the stick of butter in small pieces and dot the surface of the topping.

This is done in the same pan, naturally.

A hot oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit,  will crisp up the topping and finish cooking the apples.

Remove and cool  after about 45 minute total cooking time.

Scoop portions of the fruit crisp to plate, serve plain or garnish with ice cream, drizzled chocolate etc.

Sunday Drive

The weather isn’t really cold yet.

Apple picking IMHO is better done in sweater weather, but, if the orchids call, fresh pressed cider to confirm the beginning of fall is flowing.

A Rhode trip to the northern part of the state. The foliage is just barely starting to turn not ready for the hard core leaf peepers yet.

If the orchid also has bakery treats, then all the better for the family sweet tooth(s).

Not only do you have your choice of apples, but your choice of the many orchids that have apples/fruits available.

IMG_8798Apple strudels and other pastries.

I had a taste of the apple strudel, very flaky.

IMG_8817one gallon and 1/2 gallon of cider.

one gallon to ferment, the other to drink.

The best apple cider taste, full body and mouth feel, deep red brown color.

As the saying goes, once you taste this cider you’ll have a standard to judge all other ciders.
