INGREDIENTS
⅓ cup paprika
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons cayenne

¼ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon lemon zest
3 oranges, segmented
peanuts, chopped and toasted, if desired

DIRECTIONS
1) In large bowl, mix rub ingredients: paprika, sugar, cayenne, salt and pepper. Coat turkey breast evenly with rub. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight. Preheat smoker to 300°F. Smoke until well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Slice turkey breast
2) To make mint pesto: Combine mint, olive oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice and zest in food processor and pulse until smooth.

One of America’s Favorites – Caramel Apple

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!!

HONEY ROASTED PEANUTS
Honey roasted peanuts are smothered in a delicious honey sugar mixture. You cannot eat just one! This savory and sweet snack is one of our family’s favorites. Honey roasted peanuts make a great treat for parties, movie-watching, or just when you’re craving something delicious. Crunchy, fresh, and just plain tasty, you’ll want to keep this snack on-hand the next time you have a case of the munchies.

Health Tips
The peanut is not a nut, but a legume related to beans and lentils.

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (December 1999) showed that diets higher in monounsaturated fats from peanuts and peanut butter reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by 21% compared to the average American Diet, whereas a low-fat diet reduced the risk by only 12%.

A diet containing peanuts and peanut butter is a good source of protein and helps to include more of the “good fat” (unsaturated fat) and both naturally have zero cholesterol.

1 cup bean sprouts
1 cup thinly sliced cabbage
1 lime, quartered

Oh nuts…….

 

When buying Nuts – Whole nuts are often more expensive than those in smaller pieces, so if your recipe calls for chopped pecans/walnuts/peanuts, go ahead and buy them that way. You’ll save money and it will be less work for you, it’s a Win Win!
