Delicious with Apples

Apple bread


2 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups apples, peeled and diced
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or more to taste 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan. Beat eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl; add apples.

Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a separate bowl; add to apple mixture and stir just until evenly combined into a thick batter. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Cover loaf pan with aluminum foil; continue baking until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes more. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Apple Crisp

1 teaspoon cinnamon2 teaspoons sugar1 pinch salt flakes125g cold butter
2 dl flour
1 dl oatmeal
1 1/2 dl sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt flakes butter mold

For serving
Whipped Creamcustard sauceice cream This recipe is made for 6 servings.

Preheat the oven to 225 ° C.

Crumb: Cut the butter into pieces. Pinch butter, flour and oatmeal to a crumbly mass. Mix in sugar and salt flakes.
Peel, core and cut the apples into small pieces. Mix the apples with cinnamon, sugar and salt flakes in a greased pie dish, about 28 cm in diameter.

Spread the crumbs over the apples and bake the pie in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden.

To serve: Cool slightly and serve with whipped cream, custard or ice cream. The sea salt brings out the flavors a little extra and provides a piquant, salty contrast to the sweetness. If you don´t want that, you can skip the salt flakes.

1 kg apples1/2 cup water6 dl sugar 

Use well-ripened but not overripe apples to puree. Peel and core the apples. It is important that any injured parties and insects are removed. Add the finished apple wedges in cold water so that they don´t darken. Boil on low heat. Stir now and then. Feel with a toothpick if the apples are soft. Stir in the sugar and bring to the boil again. Mix the apple wedges to puree with a food processor. Fill the bowl half and mix in a couple of rounds so that the applesauce doesn´t run over. If you don´t have a mixer. Pour the boiled apple wedges into a sift and press them through the sift using a ladle or something to press the apples until all has gone through the sift. Pour into freezer boxes or jars in suitable sizes. Let cool and then close the cover. This way you it can be kept for 1 year. And you can take out and let thaw in the refridgerator as you want to use it. In the fridge it can be kept 1-2 weeks. You can use less sugar or no sugar at all, depending on your preference.

Dried apple snacks

Peel a bunch of apples. Core properly and then slice into about 23 mm thick slices. Either you put them then on a grid, put them in the oven at 100 degrees with the stem of a spoon at the door so there is a tiny gap. Then, just wait until they have the perfect texture. Best is to put them in early in the evening and then turn off the oven when going to bed. Than in the morning they will be done.

Option two is a bit cozier but takes longer time – Cut the apples in apple-rings and hang to dry on a string, or as me I used Chinese chopsticks that I put on a cooling rack I have. Anyways whatever
you have, hang the apple-rings somewhere where they can be left alone. A good place is in front of a window so they get some sun. Just leave them until they have the right texture.

I made two different kinds of apple-snacks. Some I cut to rings and some I just cut in small pieces that can be added into a breakfast bowl with yoghurt and muesli.

The apple snacks can be stored in a glass-jar or a plastic container.

Potatoe salad with apples

500 g boiled potatoes
500 g apples
1 Red onion
1 Tomatoe
½ dl Dill 

0, 75 tsp salt flakesPepper according to taste
1 dl Olive oil
4 tbs White balsamic vinegar
2, 5 tbs Honey

Scrub the potatoes and boil. Let cool. Cut thepotatoes and apples into bite sized pieces. This time I cut the potatoes beforeboiling, just to make them boil faster. Sometimes you might have left overpotatoes to use for the salad. Chop the tomatoe and onion into small pieces. Chopthe dill. Mix it all in a bowl. Stir the ingredients for the vinaigrette and pour it over the salad, mix gently. Mix in the remaining ingredients and stir. Save some dill for garnish.
