|Freshness in a dish!
|Chopped Apples with a little water & Brown Sugar|
This week’s French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for Compote de Pommes. Nothing could be simpler than this super-fresh way to make Compote de Pommes (French Applesauce)! Simply chop up some apples, throw them in a pan with a little water and brown sugar and let them simmer over medium-low heat until they’ve softened, run them through a food mill and stir in some vanilla! Ta-dah! You have a delicious dessert that sounds magnificent.
Okay, in full disclosure, I had to tame my inner Cher! I wanted to grind Nutmeg, sprinkle Cinnamon, shell walnuts, stir in Bourbon, or Calvados! But, one important thing Dorie has taught me is to enjoy foods without overdoing the extra flavors – and this recipe is no exception. Fresh and simple rules.
I have to admit that I don’t make applesauce very often. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that I get spoiled by my mom who brings me some every time she makes it! You see, her neighbor has a lovely apple tree. And, as luck would have it, she gave me a bag of apples this week! There’s nothing to it! In under an hour, you have a lovely, healthy dessert, snack, breakfast, tart filling.
