Apples Foster

Day 7 in my week of apple recipes...

This simple dessert is a take on the classic Bananas Foster. I figured the flavors of brown sugar, cinnamon & rum would go together with apples just as well as bananas. And really isn't it fun to play with fire...

Apples Foster

1 apple, peeled, cored & sliced thin
1 T salted butter
1/8 t cinnamon
1 1/2 t brown sugar
pinch of nutmeg
2 T rum

Melt the butter over medium low heat in a skillet. Add the apple slices & cook on low for about 10 minutes, stirring from time to time, until the apples are soft & just starting to color. Sprinkle the cinnamon, sugar & nutmeg over the apples & stir. Carefully pour in the rum (be especially carefully pouring liquor in a pan on a gas stove). Once the rum is hot set it one fire, use a lighter or torch with a long handle to keep from burning yourself. Turn off the stove & allow the rum to burn itself out. Pour over vanilla ice cream.

Serves 2
(excuse the messy bowl but this dish melts fast so you have to be quick with the photo!)

We hope you enjoyed our week of apple recipes as much as we liked making them. We actually ended up heading back to the an orchard yesterday to pick up another peck!

Hey piro girl, that looks amazing. How brave of you to play with the banana foster idea. I havent had the courage yet to do this and here you are playing around. Thinking outside the box I tell you. Excellent!

I love bananas foster, but never would have thought to try it with apples! Delicious!

This combo with some ice cream would be out of this world. I agree - great flame shot - well done.

The banana version is a tried and tested recipe - even brilliant now that it involves apples. Apples and cinnamon are great together - you agree ladies?
