Choose the best apples!
Fall is finally here and with it comes my favorite food: APPLES! Having grown up in New England, I am very picky about my apples. I don’t want them mealy or overly sweet. I want a nice, juicy McIntosh that is crisp and just a tad bit sweet.
Since we are heading into peak apple season I have been browsing through apple recipes on the Internet. I am starting to see locally grown apples in my grocery store and while they aren’t organic I figure only traveling an hour to get to my grocery store makes them low on the carbon footprint scale, right?
If you are looking for apple recipes don’t just stick with pies! You can make all sorts of things with apples from salads to breads to stuffed squash and just about everything in between.
Tips for making this baked German pancake
During my research into possible ways to use up my apples I came across some great apple recipes on AllRecipes.com. The recipe for German Apple Pancakes looked delicious, although I made a few modifications based on what I had and my own personal preference.
I used whole milk that I got from Promised Land Dairy and along with the local apples and organic eggs this made a great meatless Monday dinner idea. I threw in some walnuts for a little added protein and the resulting pancake was filling and sweet.
