18 Sep

4319957825_d9af374335Fall is in the air!

With chillier nights, blue skies, and sun-filled warmish days comes the intrinsic urge for turning on the oven, and to start roasting again.

The feeling of chilly toes, fingers, noses and adding on a scarf, or even a hoodie makes us long for something warm in our bellies that will both quiet, and compliment the chill.

Here is a perfect recipe for this time of year: roasted applesauce a la Martha Stewart.

Serves 8 Prep Time: 12 minutes Total time: 50 minutes

Ingredients: 
  • 1/4 C water
  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3 lbs apples, about 10
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • Pinch of cloves
Directions:
  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 425F. Combine water, sugar, lemon juice, and salt in a baking dish.
  2. Roast: Scatter butter pieces over mixture, and top with apples. Roast until apples are very soft, 30-40 minutes.
  3. Process: Using a food processor, blend the apples, stir in spices. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled. This delightful applesauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
