Well, even though we had a bunch of party peeps over to pick apples with us this weekend, we still have SO MANY on our tree! We got some really super-thoughtful housewarming gifts, and this was among them from our pals Jeremy and Kristie: I know it looks rather freaky-deaky, but guess what it is?? An apple baker! All you do is core the apple and sprinkle with a little suga and spice (or stevia and cinnamon, in my case) and pop it in the micro or oven. It also tells you to add some butter, but I just drizzled some water over it for moisture instead. It;s such a shame this thing only makes one apple at a time. It works so well though! After our party-hardy on Saturday, I couldn't resist trying it out right away to make an applicious sundae. Yummm...see that little caramel-y drizzle? that's scrapings from the bottom of the apple baker after I microwaved it. OOOOOOHHH!!! (Angels singing--not me--I sound nothing like an angel when I sing.)
I assure you, I will be making lots of these. If you haven't seen my guest post over at Susan's blog, check it out, because I will also be making lots of those. However, there are only so many ways to eat apples that my little Experimentarian brain can think of.
What are your suggestions?? I would love to hear how you guys would use this apple overload! Savory ideas would be more than welcome!
And I'll do ya one better--GIVEAWAY! That's right friends! It's my VERY FIRST Experimentarian giveaway! Winner gets their very own APPLE BAKER, along with a few other apple-themed goodies...
