Caramelized apples are like the stepchild of sweet treats. Think about it, everyone knows of strawberries and cream. They know about bananas foster, and peach cobbler. WHERE’S THE APPLES!?!? Johnny Appleseed would be ashamed of you. Did caramelized apples make you think of a filling for crepes? Do you think of them as toppers for pancakes, or buried under a mountain of whipped cream?
We all know of that boring old fashion apple pie, leave that to the one to your grandma. Because ain’t nobody have time for that.
Alright I’m done, I promise.
Caramelizing apples isn’t hard, and it enhances the apple so much. As I ranted above, you can use them in several different ways, i’ve even used them in barbecue sauce. I like caramelized apples because, I know Atticus will eat it up. Also these don’t have have sugar a crazy amount of sugar so you’re not losing the nutritional value. Plus these are so easy to make, your kids can help to make it a family affair.
Atticus is my handy helper, although it ends up a giant mess, I wouldn’t change it for the world. Giving him a chance to help and gain more interest in food is exciting. Knowing how to cook is an overlooked life skill. I know I wish that I spent more time in the kitchen with my mom. Hopefully, you can get gain some family memories from these.
