Yay for Apples
Tonight is just a food post, although I think I can get away with it here because this post is about APPLES – the ultimate teacher food! Today I made waffles for breakfast – but then the G-man said “make something that uses some of these damn apples!” Between our CSA box and apple picking we are swimming in apples (or “babas” as my son calls them). So, I made cinnamon-sugar apples as a topping for our waffles – yum yum!!
Cinnamon-Sugar Apple Topping:
1 medium apple – tart one works well
1 TB Earth Balance butter
2 TB of cinnamon sugar (3 parts sugar, 1 part cinnamon)
1. Slice the apple into thin slices, and then chop each slice into 1/2 in pieces.
2. Put the butter in a small saute pan and turn onto medium heat. When the butter starts to melt, put in the apples and mix them around.
3. Cover and cook at a low heat for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The apples should get very soft.
4. Add in the cinnamon sugar and stir to coat all the apples. Cook with a cover for 3-5 more minutes, stir and serve as a great topping for waffles, pancakes, ice cream, etc.!
