This all started with buying a bunch of awesome apples at Costco. We were traveling and I decided to make apple scones for the trip. Of course I checked out Sally’s Baking Addiction; and, of course, she had a recipe that sounded divine! This included a recipe for Salted Caramel Sauce…scary! Years ago, I tried to make candy…no luck. Caramel seems suspiciously like candy. Thankfully, it isn’t all!
I wanted an option from the caramel sauce. Apple butter. Crockpot. Easy. Delicious!
Since I recently got a bread maker I have been reading bread recipes all over the internet. King’s Flour is one site I frequent. They had an interesting treatment for apples in their apple bread recipe. I decided to use this to roast the apples in the apple scones.
The final part of the apple extravaganza happened while I was peeling the apples for the apple butter. There must be something to do with all those apple peels…and there is! Here is the recipe for dried apple peel that I used.
Scones: The apple scone recipe is good. The dough is so WET and the cooked scones are more like quick bread than scones…good, but not exactly what I was after. They are delicious though.
Salted Caramel: So easy to make, just take it slow with melting the sugar. I have a small nonstick pot, very easy to clean this up!
Apple butter: Easy to make, makes the house smell wonderful. Seriously, wonderful!
Roasted Apples: This was easy, added flavor…will do again.
Apple Peel Crisps: This might be the hit of the extravaganza. These are delectable, crunchy, easy, made from something you might normally through away, “good” for you. Again, delicious.
