Roasted Pork with Apples
It’s common to combine pork with apples. In this easy recipe, we’re doing just that, but amping up the apple taste with an apple cider reduction. Dried sage can be used, but try to find fresh sage leaves which will add more flavor to this dish……………………..

Irish Pork Roast with Roasted Root Vegetables
In this easy one-pan dinner, boneless pork loin roast is cooked over a bed of carrots and parsnips for an all-in-one dish that makes an impressive centerpiece for a holiday meal or Sunday dinner. Choose free-range heritage pork if you can–its flavor really shines with no more seasoning than a bit of thyme and a little sea salt. If you’d like, dress up the meal with a traditional Irish apple condiment–Ploughmans chutney or Bramley applesauce, which you can find in specialty stores and online……………………………………

Pork Carnitas
This Mexican-inspired meal is an easy crowd-pleaser. Savory pulled pork is served atop crisp corn tortillas and topped with sour cream and salsa in this simple slow-cooker recipe…………………….

One of America’s Favorites – Apple Dumpling

January 20, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

An apple dumpling is a baked pastry-wrapped apple. To prepare apple dumplings, apples are peeled, cored and sometimes quartered and placed on a portion of dough. The hole from the core may be filled with cinnamon, butter and sugar and sometimes dried fruit such as raisins, sultanas, or currants. The dough is folded over the apples and sealed. Sometimes a spiced sauce is poured over the dumplings which are then baked until tender; the sugar and butter create a sweet sauce. Apple dumplings can be served hot, cold, or room temperature for breakfast, dessert, or as a main dish.

An apple dumpling served with vanilla ice cream

Boiled apple dumplings are among the earliest of fruit puddings. They were eaten “at all social levels”. In 1726 Nicholas Amhurst complained about apple dumplings at Oxford, saying “nothing can be expected from only rot-gut small beer, and heavy apple-dumplings, but stupidity, sleepiness, and indolence. “Two recipes for apple dumplings were published in Hannah Glasse’s 1747 cookbook. In 1749–1750, when botanist Pehr Kalm traveled from New Jersey to Quebec, he reported having apple dumplings at every meal. In 1754 English agriculturalist William Ellis called them one of the most common foods among farmers, along with bacon and pickled pork.

Apple dumplings are typically made by wrapping a pastry crust around a peeled, cored, and sometimes quartered apple, sometimes stuffing the hollow from the core with butter, sugar, sometimes dried fruits such as raisins, sultanas, or currants, and spices, sealing the pastry, and pouring a spiced sauce over the top before baking or, in the case of older recipes, boiling. The earliest recipes refer to boiling, as few homes had ovens, while many later recipes call for baking. Sauces typically call for sugar or brown sugar and butter boiled with water, sometimes with sliced lemons or spices such as cinnamon added for flavor.

Apple dumplings are served for breakfast or other meals, as sides, or as dessert. They are served hot, warm or at room temperature, sometimes with milk, cream, whipped cream, custard, or ice cream. Each dumpling is an individual serving.

Apple dumplings are a common food in the northeastern United States, especially around Pennsylvania, where they are considered a “cultural staple”. Food historians trace this type of apple dumpling back to Glasse’s book. A common recipe among the Pennsylvania Dutch, it is often eaten as a breakfast item or dessert. It is sometimes served with cream, whipped cream, or ice cream.

In the US, September 17 is National Apple Dumpling Day. Annual apple dumpling festivals are held in the towns of Atwood, Illinois, Stuart, Virginia, and Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania.

How should apples be stored…………..

* Refrigerate apples for full flavor and crunch.
* The perfect temperature for storing apples is between 32-40F degrees.
* Store in perforated plastic bags or containers that allow airflow to prevent drying.
* Apples keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

The Granny Smith Apple…………………….

Researchers also found that eating Granny Smith’s can help combat against chronic inflammation, which can lead to diabetes. Apples are an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C, but are also high in water content — which can help you stay full, not to mention hydrated.

Slow-Cooker Apple Cobbler
This crock pot apple cobbler couldn’t be easier: just spend 15 minutes prepping the apple mixture and cake topping, then let the slow cooker take care of the rest. We like the mixture of Honeycrisp and Fuji apples, but you can use other apples, such as Gala or Pink Lady, or add some Granny Smiths for tartness. Just steer clear of softer apples like Macintosh or Golden Delicious, which will get too mushy in the slow cooker. The apples release their juices, which marry with the sugar to create a delicious caramelly sauce, while the topping puffs up and takes on a lovely brown color. This simple fall dessert is delicious as-is or with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream……………..

Low-Carb Blueberry Cobbler
Old-fashioned desserts like blueberry cobbler never go out of style, but this updated version has significantly fewer grams of sugar than traditional recipes. To cut carbs, gluten-free flours replace wheat flour in the biscuit topping………………….

Peach Cobbler
A fruit cobbler is an old-fashioned, crowd-pleasing dessert that showcases summer’s sweetest produce. Use fresh peaches when they are in season. The rest of the year, you can use frozen peaches for a quick and easy homemade dessert………………

There’s some great apples at stores right now………..

When buying apples, choose those without any bruises or soft, mushy spots. They should be firm for their specific variety (a McIntosh will not be as firm as a Granny Smith). Look for fruit with shiny skin—dull skin hints at a lack of crispness and flavor. Apples quickly lose their crispness at room temperature.
