AUTUMN APPLE SAUTé WITH CARAMEL AND NUTS

 

  • Cooking Time: 25 minutes
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • CARAMEL SAUCE
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • APPLE SAUTÉ
  • ¾ cup Tropical Food’s PB&J mix®, crushed
  • 2 medium gala apples
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. cardamom
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp. butter

Directions

  • CARAMEL SAUCE
  • Add sugar and water in heavy bottomed pan. Stir until water is incorporated; add extra tsp. of water if needed.
  • Turn heat up to high and stir only once. If sugar crystals begin to form, take a pastry brush and wipe edges.
  • When sugar starts to turn amber, remove from heat and add butter quickly. Stir the butter until sauce is consistent. Use extreme caution in this step as a hot reaction is brewing in the pot.
  • Pour cream in and keep stirring, using caution.
  • Stir salt in and set aside to cool.
  • APPLE SAUTÉ
  • Peel and core apples; dice into medium size cubes. Toss apples with brown sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg.
  • Melt butter in a medium size sauté pan on low to medium heat.
  • Add diced apples after butter is melted, turn heat up to medium. Be sure to scrape bottom of pan a few times with spatula to prevent scorching.
  • The apples are finished when the butter and sugar begin to caramelize (usually 5-10 minutes).
  • SERVING
  • Divide apple sauté among desired dishes. With a spoon, drizzle caramel on apples. Top with a small handful of crushed Tropical Food’s PB&J mix®.
