In the Fall, Eila likes to put local apples to use in both sweet and savory dishes at her family meals. The recipe she is sharing with Walter Stewart’s shoppers this month takes advantage of local apples, and is one of her children’s favorite side dishes. She recently served the roasted apples alongside roasted new potatoes and a pork tenderloin, which she marinated in soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and maple syrup, and her 6-year-old claimed, “this just might be my favorite dinner!”
Savory Roasted Apples
(makes 8-10 servings)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
6 apples (any variety), chopped into 1” pieces
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 375. Drizzle olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Place apples, onions and spices on baking sheet and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes, stir, and bake for another 5 minutes. Apples should pierce easily with a fork, but not be mushy. Serve warm or room temp. Combine leftover apples with brie and a baguette to make decadent Fall picnic fare, perfect for soccer sidelines or a hike in Waveny!
