Pictures from the trip and an apple recipe to start simmering on...a simple apple compote, one of my stand-by favorites.
my good friend Lisa knows a good apple when she sees it
so that's how they gather all those apples...
easy, light and delicious -- apple compote with bourbon & vanilla ice cream
Makes 2 to 3 cups
3 granny Smith apples (or other tart apples like Crispin), peeled, cored and cut into 2” chunks
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon candied ginger, minced
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup bourbon
In a large saucepan or heavy-bottomed pot, combine all ingredients except bourbon and simmer for 20 minutes. Add bourbon and simmer for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Compote should be slightly chunky. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
