So far we have made: Apple pot roast, dehydrated apples, apple cake, apple bread, apple butter, apple sauce, apple pie filling, apples and brown rice, cabbage and apples, Roasted chicken with apples, apple dumplings and some others i can't quite remember because all I can hear right now is Bubba going through his whole shrimp thing. If I forget a recipe and you would like it just let me know and I will pass it on! Great recipes are for sharing
~ my sustitutions or additions: apple sauce instead of oil, no Vanillia, apple pie spice instead of cinnamon I also added more nuts. I thought the recipie needed more liquid after it was all mixed so I added more apple sauce until it looked liquidy enough. I made one loaf and the rest of the mix into muffins. I think i'm going to make more of this as soon as the girls go to bed!!!!!!
Awesome Apple Bread
Preparation Time: :15
Overall Time: 1:55
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups apples, diced
3 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Combine and set aside the oil, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Sift flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to oil mixture gradually. Add apples and nuts. Bake in 2 regular loaf pans or 3 foil loaf pans for 1-1/2 hours at 300°F. Cool 10 minutes in the pan. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired
now we have a apple core-er, peeler,slicer combo which made this SOO easy. It slices the apples in a spiral like a slinky so we rolled it in the sugar and made sure the sugar got in between all the layers. before we stuffed it with the other ingredents.
1 pastry for 2-crust pie
6 apples (peeled and cored)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 Tablespoons butter (softened)
1/2 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
1. Roll pastry slightly less than 1/8" thick. Cut into 7" squares.
2. mix sugar and spices in a small bowl
3. Put apple on center of each pastry square. Fill with mixture of sugar a few raisins and a few nuts. Dot each with teaspoon of butter.
4. Bring points of pastry up over apple and overlap.
5. Place a few inches apart in baking pan.
6. Bake at 425 degrees F for 45 minutes.
Now this had a syrup to go over it but since we are trying to eat healthier and not to mention Tim being a diabetic.. we could not add the syrup and cook all the dumplings together but it was sweet enough without it.
CABBAGE WITH APPLES
now my adjustments were: No bacon, no Sugar, no Salt and Pepper and no Raisins and we used Apple Cider Vinegar
we also used Green Cabbage
Sautéed Cabbage & Apples
2 slices bacon
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 medium cabbage, red or green
2 Granny Smith or firm Delicious apples
1/4 C. raisins (optional)
Sauté bacon in a bit of olive oil until crisp. Remove and drain. Discard fat and oil. Place 2 Tbsp. olive oil in pan and heat. Add onion. Finely shred or dice cabbage (discarding core) and add to onion.
Continue to sauté over medium-high heat. Core and dice apples (peeled or not, optional - we don't) and add with crumbled bacon and raisins. When wilted but not browned, add a scant 1/4 cup vinegar and 3 Tbsp. sugar. Cover and steam on low heat just until cabbage is tender. Taste, adjust vinegar and sugar, and add salt and black pepper to taste.
This is great served as a side dish to meats or poultry
APPLE BROWN RICE:
2 apples cored, peeled and diced
1 cup of brown rice
1 tbsp butter
1 1/4 c of Water
1 1/4 c of Apple juice or cider
bring water, juice and butter to a boil on the stove. once boiling add apples and rice. Reduce heat and cook until done. I have trouble cooking brown rice so I left it on for about an hour or two while I run errands.
APPLE YUMMY CAKE
preheat to 350
- 1 yellow cake mix
- apple Cider
- apple butter
-apple pie spice
-apple pie filling (we used homemade)
-eggs (according to box)
Pour cake mix into a bowl. Substitute the cider for the Water and the Applebutter for the oil and add the eggs, and a few shakes of apple pie spice. Mix as usual set aside. Spray bundt cake pan. Pour some of the apple pie filling in the bottom ( think pinapple upside cake) pout the cake batter on top. Cook according to directions or until toothpick comes out clean.
Serve with Ice Cream
Some of the things I made like apple pot roasat and the roasted chicken are pretty basic recipes but like I said above if you want them just let me know. I'm going to go try to convince baby girl that it is indeed nap time
