Apples, granola and brown sugar oh my. The Salish apples we included in your recent Winter CSA share are a fairly new breed of apple. Also know as the Pinova, the Salish Rose is a cross between a Splendour apple, selected for heartiness, and a Gala apple, selected for texture and taste. Aside from being delicious raw, it’s pretty darn good when you throw it in the oven with a few other tasty ingredients. Here’s a quick and easy breakfast recipe that included these wonderful little apples topped with our very own honey from TheWoogie Bee!
With a pairing knife or apple corer, remove stem and seeds making a v-shaped space where your granola will call home. Try not to cut all the way through the apple otherwise you'll wind up with a little granola leak.
Place your apples on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Combine the granola, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Once combined, pack the apples with the granola mixture. Any leftovers can be spread around the apples to bake along with them.
On the top of each apple, place a tablespoon of butter.
Place your apples in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes if you would like them to remain firm. Adjust the time depending on soft and cooked you want your apples.
After they're done cooking, remove from oven and drizzle with honey and top with whipped cream.
