Apple season is on! If you go apple picking, you might end up with a bushel of fruit to enjoy. What will you do with your bounty of apples? Apple pie, apple tart and apple crisp might use up a few pounds, but have you considered the appeal of apples in savory dishes? They are wonderful for adding sweetness when cooked down and served with veal or pork. Apples add crunch when used raw in salads, or in our burger recipe below. They also work well with foie gras.
Apples are perfect with pork, but we also pair them with wild boar, quail, and beef in these recipes. Don’t stop there – try incorporating apples in your recipes, and let us know what you make. If you still have apples left, make applesauce.
