The Apple Dessert Topping of all HappinessPosted: April 5, 2009
This is SOOOO easy and healthy, in theory, as long as you ignore the fact it is going on top of ice cream. We made it last night for the first time and I have been waiting all day to make it again. (I thought it might be excessive to have dessert at 10am.)
Ready for the ridiculously hard recipe.
- Apple Juice, about 2 cups (I just poured it in)
- 2 peeled and chopped apples.
Cook apple juice on med. heat, until it has been reduced almost in half and add apple pieces. Cook until apple pieces are tender, and remove apple pieces (then set aside) continue cooking juice until it has reduced down to a small amount of liquid (about 1/4 or less of what you started with). Just before you are about to take it out of pan, turn off heat and toss in some sugar, a couple spoonfuls should do. Stir in quickly and pour over the apple pieces. (You don’t want to caramelize the sugar so don’t leave it in the hot pan long.)
Cover bowl with plastic wrap. (Push down to the top of apples so there is no air between apples and plastic wrap.) Put bowl in refrigerator for about 1/2 an hour to an hour to cool it down a bit. Then put it over top of vanilla ice cream.
Some caramel and cream on top of this or granola…Huummm, so much I want to try. Apples in homemade apple syrup. I am so great. Go me! Alright, enough back-patting, I’m off to make some more.
