With the delicious abundance of local apples this season, it time to share a tasty recipe for dessert from Julia Deane at Culinary Works. This is has some variations with the sugar depending on what your family and guest would enjoy but otherwise this is a simple recipe to share! While baking, make sure to check the brownies as all oven temperatures can vary.
1 cup room temperature butter
1.5 cups sugar (you can use brown sugar instead, optional)
4 large apples, peeled and chopped small
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup white wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
Beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time. Combine well. Add apples, mix gently. Separately mix together the dry ingredients in another bowl. Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients, slowly and mix gently. Pour into a greased/sprayed 9 x 13″ pan. Sprinkle raw sugar on top before baking to give them a crunchy crust. Bake at 350 degrees, for about 30-40 minutes on convection until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Enjoy!
Autumn is in the Air
An Apple A Day
We’re always excited for fresh new arrivals, especially Apples! We just started receiving fresh deliveries of 1st crop McIntoshes, Ginger Golds, & Granny Smiths, as well as Paula Reds & Empires from Hudson Valley. And possibly the most in-demand apple these days, Honeycrisps seem to inspire a devotion bordering on obsession from eaters who prize their sweet taste and distinct juiciness. A “great hand apple”: phenomenal for biting into raw. This explosive crunchiness isn’t simply a product of better freshness or farming practices — it’s an actual genetic variation. Honeycrisp cells are twice the size of those of other apples, which accounts for their unique, pleasing texture. Before we know it the local CT apple season will be here!
Walter Stewart’s is your local fall farm-stand with your favorite native apple and pear varieties arriving fresh daily from Lyman Orchards (Middlefield, CT) and Blue Hill Orchards (Wallingford, CT) – Gala, Ginger Gold, Honeycrisp, Paula Red, Asian, Bartlett, Red and more! – as well as fresh local cider and cider donuts, decorative gourds and festive pumpkins!
Apple Season Coloring Contest Winners
Walter Stewart’s announces the winners of this year’s Apple Coloring Contest. The contest was open to children, ages 9 and under, and three winners were selected for the “most imaginative” entries, but once again it was no easy task for the panel of judges at Walter Stewart’s to choose just three winners since all of the coloring submissions were extremely impressive by yet another talented group of young local artists. Ally Shulman (pictured with her brother Matty and Alex Stewart), aged 5, Abby Thomas (pictured with her brothers and Alex Stewart), aged 7, and Ellie Grogan (pictured with Alex Stewart), aged 9, were selected as winners in their respective age groups and won gift cards to New Canaan Toy Store. The winning entries along with all of this year’s excellent submissions are currently displayed in Walter Stewart’s as well as their facebook page (facebook.com/walterstewarts).
Walter Stewart’s will announce it’s next coloring contest later this week.
