We winterized the yard during the creepy, sunny, warm weather last week, put up a cord of firewood (OMG getting firewood delivered in Seattle was an exercise in patience!) , netted the winter garden beds and let the chickens ( happy happy backyard chickens) out to free range the yard. The day after we finished all the work, the skies opened up on us. We moved indoors and had the first fire of the season in a well cleaned fireplace. All is cozy at Jimmy and Frankies. To make it more cozy I wanted to do a dessert that was light and would follow roast lamb. I also wanted to use the oven since I was already roasting a lamb. I had about a dozen apples sitting in the crisper for going on a month now (there were a lot more cuz Washington IS the apple state, but apple sauce, apple bread, apple jelly, caramel apple dip and sliced apples sprinkled with lemon has brought our fall apple share down to a manageable level) I opted for roasted apples... not baked,... big difference.
These were a great companion to roasted masala lamb and a good palate cleanser.
Super simple, Super easy!
Roasted apples for two
3 or four apples washed and sliced in half
1/4 cup sugar
