Martha Mondays: Baked Apple Wedges

I’ve got my life back together! The cookbook was submitted today and I am breathing again! I not only made today’s project, but I started a batch of sauerkraut, as per the recipe in Oct Living, so I’ll be reporting on that in a few days once it ferments. I’ll also be once again posting lots more here, and over at the NoPotCooking blog.

Now, as for today’s project, baked apple wedges, (chosen by Sassy Suppers) what did everyone think? I have to give this one a thumbs down. I don’t quite understand what it was supposed to be really. You bake apple quarters but you don’t bake them long enough for them to get really soft. I also did not understand why the recipe said to sprinkle brown sugar on the baking sheet. All it did was make a sticky mess that was hard to clean up! I did like the oats, brown sugar, ginger, nutmeg, and almonds, but would enjoy it much more on an apple crisp.

  1. Yippee! I am so glad that the cookbook has been submitted and that you can finally breathe again! Just in time for lots of autumn and winter cooking!

    I am making this tonight. I had wondered whether to adapt the recipe and so I might do that. Thank you for your kind words Brette, it was a bad bug but I am feeling a lot better now.

    I am looking forward to fall cooking. Lots of work to do though too – The Parchment Paper Cookbook comes out next month, so I will be working on publicity. I’ve also suddenly got three indexes to do, all due around the same time.

    Sorry for the dud! My apples did get tender but, you’re right, a crisp would have been tastier. Thanks for trying it with me though 🙂

    You never know, do you? I thought it sounded good, but once I considered the baking time, I didn’t think the apples would cook enough. There are people who don’t like mushy baked apples though, so maybe that is who it appeals to! It’s always fun to try something new and no one should ever apologize for picking a recipe that didn’t work. Aren’t you amazed at the sheer number that aren’t great though?
