Pleasure – Apples


September is here…school begins…the bliss of summer ends. Happily, Autumn has its own joys…and apples are tops on my list of seasonal favorites.


I bought a small basket of Gala apples at the local farm market. Galas are one of my favorite apple varieties. I enjoy using them to make a delicious side dish of baked apples. (With whipped cream on top, baked apples can also be a delicious dessert.)


Core and slice the apples thin. No special measurements, slice up as many as you think you will eat in one sitting, or cut a few extra for leftovers.


I like to cook baked apples in glass bakeware. Place apples in baking dish, dot freely with butter, sprinkle top with brown sugar, and add a sprinkling of cinnamon. I sometimes also add a pinch of salt. Bake at 350, covered with foil or a lid for about forty-five minutes. Enjoy!


One thought on “Pleasure – Apples

  1. What a wonderful recipe ! I live in a country, which does not grow apples, so we depend on imported apples of which there are so many varieties. We have gala apples and they come from China- do they have the same flavour as the American gala apples ? I have to eat some to compare but the best apples I have tasted, whose taste lingers long after you have eaten them are Lebanese apples.


Thanks so much for your comments. They fill my life with sunshine.
