We went to the market in town Thursday..it is my favorite time of the year for the market..
We were closest to Jean-Talon that day..It's indoor/outdoor and sprawling..smack in Little Italy..so you can also shop at specialty stores.
I wanted to get our bushel of peppers..
They are split.. seeded ,de~ stemmed and then charred on the BBQ..placed in a paper bag to help steam their charred coats off and then...
Placed in a huge bowl prepared with garlic, evoo and basil ..I let them sit for about 1 hr.. then they are bagged and frozen.
I dislike the taste of brine.. so jarred roasted red peppers are not my fave..this gives a most falvorful topping for pizzas.. antipasto..sauces..
They are delicious..and the scent of them marinating in their flavored oil bath is heavenly~
The market was glowing with reds oranges.. greens yellows.. Montreal..their leaves seem more advanced than here in the country!
It was a gorgeous day.
I bought broccoli on stem..asparagus..cauliflower..many items..
It was very busy..I saw someone w/ a wicker trolley..
You guessed it..from France..I've been on the lookout since I left the one I wanted in Fance~
Made a good apple crisp..(s)
My friend Linda sent it to me:) The recipe is perfect.
I will post at the end if I can copy and paste..
I did add some crushed Biscoff cookies..as recommended by Chris..to my recipe and liked the little edge it gives..
I know we all have many apple crisp recipes..but I like trying new things..:)
Alos ..who knew just adding little pieces of your pizza dough..sauce ,cheese ..could make such cute little pizza muffins in our parchment baking cups:)
Also taking the time for lovely fall walks..Our weather has been SUPERB.
Killer Apple Crisp courtesy of Linda~
7-8 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 cup dried cranberries (optional, but good!)
2 T. lemon juice
1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar (to taste)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup plus 2 T. light brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
10 T. cold butter, diced
Optional: 1 cup pecans (or walnuts), lightly toasted and coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 375.
In a large bowl, toss the apples, lemon juice and sugar until mixture is well combined.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, oats, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. With food processor or pastry blender, cut in/pulse the butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in nuts.
Spread the apple mixture in greased baking dish. The fruit should be about 2 to 2 1/2 inches deep.
Sprinkle the topping evenly over apples. Bake the crisp for about 55 minutes or until bubbling and top is golden.
So it worked..but don't look at the white bars:)
