I think I like apples more than any other fruit.... It also matches with my favorite time of year, autumn, where all the colours appear in nature and there are crispy clear weather but still some warmth in the sun.
I live in a community where a lot of farmers grow fruit and vegetables, and apples are a big part of it. One of the farms, Frukt and Juletrægården, is run by a nice quilter and her husband. Last year I went to her farm to by some apples and she sold me some really big juicy ones. They have a fantastic flavour and needs little suger when you mash them. One time a success and it easily becomes tradition. So this year I went again and bought 2 boxes which is 12 kg.
I peel them, slices them in squares and cook them with a little sugar and vanilla. After this I put them in jars or small plastic boxes and after cooling they go to the freezer.
We use it in stead of jam thoughout the winter - yummy !!!
The last four apples went into an apple cake. The recipe is my neightbours mothers secret recipe - and it is simply delicius. Bon appetite!
