One of America’s Favorites – Caramel Apple

October 15, 2018 at 5:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment

Caramel apple with peanuts

Caramel apples or taffy apples are created by dipping or rolling apples-on-a-stick in hot caramel, sometimes then rolling them in nuts or other small savories or confections, and allowing them to cool. Generally, they are called caramel apples when only caramel is applied and taffy apples for when there are further ingredients such as peanuts applied.

For high-volume production of caramel apples, a sheet of caramel can be wrapped around the apple, followed by heating the apple to melt the caramel evenly onto it. This creates a harder caramel that is easier to transport but more difficult to eat. Caramel apple production at home usually involves melting pre-purchased caramel candies for dipping or making a homemade caramel from ingredients like corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla. Homemade caramel generally results in a softer, creamier coating.

Bags of caramels are commonly sold during the Autumn months in America for making caramel apples.

In recent years, it has become increasingly popular to decorate caramel apples for holidays like Halloween. Methods used to do this include applying sugar or salt to softened caramel, dipping cooled, hardened apples in white or milk chocolate, or painting designs onto finished caramel apples with white chocolate colored with food coloring.

Classically, the preferred apples for use in caramel apples are tart, crisp apples such as Granny Smith or Fuji apples. Softer, grainy-textured apples can also be used, but are not preferred.

In addition to caramel apples, manufacturers and consumers have started to coat apples in chocolate syrup, peanut butter, etc. and adding toppings such as crushed peanuts, pretzels, mini M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, coconut flakes, and mini chocolate chips. Candy apple shops and candy apple bars have started to pop up in bigger cities, at weddings and parties to allow people to enjoy the apple with the dipping sauces and toppings they prefer.

* I always think of these around the Halloween Season. When I was growing up my Grandparents owned a small neighborhood store. Every Halloween Season my Grandmother would just make endless amounts of Caramel Apple with crushed Peanuts on them. So Good!!

Enjoy and eat Healthy! https://diabeticgourmet.com/

 

WALNUT-STUFFED TURKEY BREAST WITH CIDER GRAVY

Ingredients

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and quartered
3/4 lb. large shallots, quartered
3 cups fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup apple cider
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. flour
Salt and ground black pepper
1 cup roasted walnuts
1 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. ground sage
2 tsp. canola oil, divided
1/2 tsp. salt
Freshly ground black pepper
6-7 lb. whole turkey breast

Directions

1 – Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
In food processor, pulse roasted nuts with thyme and sage until coarsely ground. Add 1 teaspoon oil, 1 tablespoon water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and generous pinch of pepper. Whirl to a grainy paste.
2 – Using hands, separate skin from turkey breast, taking care not to tear. Lift skin and push half of walnut paste under skin on each side of breast. Pull skin back into place and spread nut mixture in an even layer by smoothing the skin, using gentle pressure. Coat skin with remaining 1 teaspoon of oil.
3 – Place breast upside-down on rack in roasting pan. Place apple and as many shallots as fit into cavity. Push three short bamboo skewers across opening to hold the filling in cavity, and turn breast right side up. Add broth and remaining shallots to pan.
4 – Roast breast for 30 minutes. If breast is browned, tent loosely with foil. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue roasting until instant-read thermometer inserted almost to the bone registers 160 degrees, about 60 minutes. To re-crisp skin, remove foil for last 20 minutes. Transfer turkey to platter. Strain pan juices into measuring cup, discarding solids. Skim off as much fat as possible.
5 – Set roasting pan on stove over medium-high heat. Pour in cider and vinegar, and boil, scraping up brown bits sticking to pan with wooden spoon. When liquid is reduced to 1/4 cup, off heat, whisk in flour. Return pan to heat, and stir until boiling gravy thickens, about 5 minutes. Pour into a sauceboat.
6 – Remove turkey skin. Lift off walnut mixture, and set aside. Slice breast, arranging meat on a warmed platter. Set walnut stuffing beside it. Add apples and shallots from cavity, if desired. Serve, passing gravy separately.

Maple Ginger Chicken Thighs w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Seasoned Pinto Beans, and….

Today’s Menu: Maple Ginger Chicken Thighs w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Seasoned Pinto Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared Scrambled Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 81 degrees out today. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast. Later went to the ATM and mailed a couple of letters. After Lunch I got the cart out and did some yard work. Then took a ride around the neighborhood, really nice out! For Dinner tonight a new recipe for Chicken Thighs. I prepared Maple Ginger Chicken Thighs w/ Roasted Butternut Squash, Seasoned Pinto Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

Tried a new recipe I cam across in the newspaper Wednesday, Maple Ginger Chicken Thighs. Looked and sounded good so I’m giving it a try. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 Shallot (finely sliced), 3/4 cup Apple Cider, 1/2 cup Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Flavor Syrup, 1 tablespoon finely grated Ginger, 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 teaspoon chopped fresh Thyme leaves (plus 5 sprigs for the roasting pan), 3/4 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground Black Pepper, 8 boneless and skinless Chicken Thighs, and 3 medium Granny Smith Apples (cored and quartered). I substituted the Maple Sugar Syrup with Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Flavor Syrup, I used Sea Salt instead of the normal Salt, I used Granny Smith Apples, and I used the Skinless and Boneless Chicken Thighs instead the bone in and Skin still on Thighs.

 

Now to prepare it; I start by getting a medium bowl. Then whisk the shallot, cider, maple syrup, grated ginger, apple cider vinegar, chopped thyme leaves, kosher salt and ground black pepper. Next place the chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade into the bag, seal it and refrigerate for 12-24 hours, turning one to coat all pieces. I marinated the chicken overnight.

 

 

 

 

Next day; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove chicken from marinade and arrange pieces, skin side up, in a 9-by-13 inch baking dish. Tuck the apples and thyme sprigs among the chicken pieces. Pour the marinade over top. Bake, basting occasionally, about 1 hour, until chicken is cooked. Check the thighs with a meat thermometer, should be 165 degrees internal temperature. Serve the chicken and apples with the sauce spooned over top.Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner! Excellent Keeper Recipe! Chicken was tender and moist and the Syrup along with all of the other ingredients add incredible flavor! And it’s Parent Approved, Mom and Dad both loved it!

 

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! And this too has quickly become a favorite. I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Crumbled Bacon Bits, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash!

 

 

 

For another side an item I haven’t had in a while, Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. I purchased a couple of cans of this at a nearby Walmart, they carry a good selection of a lot of the Margaret Holmes Products. To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. And I have delicious side dish! I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are delicious, love the Seasoning. I also baked a loaf of LaBrea Multi-Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet peach Snapple to drink.
