Harvest time

As the harvest season comes to a close I find myself regretting the opportunities i had to freeze fresh, local, or organic fruit in their peak of season.
It's not too late to get delicious local apples at a great price though!

Parlee Farm has it's last weekend coming up, and they are having sales on apples.. not to mention, you can take as many pumpkins as you can carry for $20!!!

Here is a recipe for baked apples that I did a couple weeks ago:
adapted from here

  • 4 large fibrous apples
  • 3-4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup currants or chopped raisins
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup boiling water

1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2 inch of the bottom of the apples. Spoon out the seeds. Make the holes about an inch wide.
2 In a small bowl, combine the honey, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture. Top with spoon of butter
3 Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30 minutes or until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.
