You're the apple of our eye

You're the apple of our eye

"You're the apple of our eye"

The weather is turning…slowly but surely, and my kids and I already made our first trip to an apple orchard, Picnic Hill in Lincoln.  Local produce always seems to taste better, and supporting a fellow entrepreneur always makes me smile.  With the bushels of apples you’ll be picking this fall, here are a few ideas to put them to good use (outside apple crisp of course!)
Many of you miss our savory program at TCS, so I’m sharing a few recipes you guys love to eat!
Superfoods Bowl
Superfoods Bowl
  • 170 g greek yogurt (or your favorite yogurt of choice)
  • 1/8 tsp maca powder 
  • 1 apple, poached in chai tea, and cut into slices
  • 1 oz apple butter
  • 1 tsp bee pollen
  • 6 g cocoa nibs
  • 15 g granola (this is the granola recipe I shared in a previous email!)
  • Drizzle local Valhalla honey
Spoon yogurt into bowl, and evenly shake maca powder all over top.  Take a spoonful of your poaching liquid and pour over yogurt/maca.  Fan your fruit slices over the right half of your bowl, and your apple butter on other 1/2.  Sprinkle lines of garnishes from left to right (pollen, nibs, granola)  Lightly drizzle honey over your entire bowl.  Enjoy!

Apple Bacon Grilled Cheese
Apple Bacon Grilled Cheese
  • White Sourdough or Garlic Asiago from local bakery, Le Quartier 
  • 1/2 oz apple butter 
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1/4 apple- thinly sliced 
  • 1 oz havarti
  • 1 oz cheddar
  • 1/2 Tbl fresh thyme (leaves plucked off the stem)
  • Drizzle local Valhalla honey
Layer apple butter on one slice of bread, take other slice and layer cheeses, bacon, then apple and top with 1/2 your thyme and sandwich together.  Butter outsides of bread and toast in skillet.  Finish grilled cheese with drizzle of honey and remainder of fresh thyme. Devour!
