I’m overwhelmed with apples and pears at the moment. My challenge is that I don’t eat very many crumbles, pies, cakes or chutneys. I just don’t have a sweet tooth. Inspired by Carl Legge, I will definitely have a go at making apple cider vinegar (salads and cole slaw I DO eat). But what else?
I’m not totally adverse to chutney. The trouble is, most recipes say the chutney “goes well with cold meats and cheeses”, neither of which I really eat. So I need something a bit more versatile, something to go with veggie burgers, perhaps? Or with Indian food?
Here are a few recipes that strike my fancy:
- Pear Chutney – “The Perfect Partner to Pecorino”
- Tomato and apple ketchup
- Fragrant Mango & Apple Chutney
- Apple barbecue sauce
- Spicy plum & apple chutney
- Pear relish
- Apple Ketchup (sans tomato)
- Gingered Pear Preserves
- Spiced pear ketchup
Tell me, apple aficionados, what does a girl without a sweet tooth do with a serious amount of apples? I am open to suggestions. Who knows, maybe one of you out there has the ultimate apple pie / cake / crumble recipe that will make me change my ways!
