Autumn recipes: 5 gluten-free recipes with apples –
The apple is an extremely versatile ingredient that lends itself to many types of dishes: we have selected for you 5 delicious gluten-free recipes with apples.
The apple tree (Malus pumila, commonly and erroneously called Malus domestica) is a deciduous tree in the rose family best known for its sweet, pomaceous fruit, the apple. It is cultivated worldwide as a fruit tree, and is the most widely grown species in the genus Malus. The tree originated in Central Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today. Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe, and were brought to North America by European colonists. Apples have religious and mythological significance in many cultures, including Norse, Greek and European Christian traditions.
Apples are an important ingredient in many desserts, such as apple pie, apple crumble, apple crisp and apple cake. They are often eaten baked or stewed, and they can also be dried and eaten or reconstituted (soaked in water, alcohol or some other liquid) for later use. When cooked, some apple cultivars easily form a puree known as apple sauce. Apples are also made into apple butter and apple jelly. They are also used (cooked) in meat dishes.
- In the UK, a toffee apple is a traditional confection made by coating an apple in hot toffee and allowing it to cool. Similar treats in the U.S. are candy apples (coated in a hard shell of crystallized sugar syrup), and caramel apples, coated with cooled caramel.
- Apples are eaten with honey at the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah to symbolize a sweet new year.
- Farms with apple orchards may open them to the public, so consumers may themselves pick the apples they will purchase.
5 gluten-free recipes with apples
Gluten-free Braised Pork Wings with Apple & Onion Gravy
“Pork wings. They sound a little bizarre – pigs can finally fly! Except, not quite. Once cooked, these porky pieces do look a little like supersized “wings”, but they’re actually part of the pork shank, the lower part of the leg. Since these are part of a working muscle, they don’t have a lot of fat – most shin bones don’t! – and need to be slow cooked before they become tender. These braised pork wing are extremely tasty, especially if you use the juices created while the pork is cooking to make a pan sauce or gravy. That’s what we’re going to do here!” Continues on the website: Braised Pork Wings with Apple & Onion Gravy.
Apple Chips with Cinnamon Essential Oil
“Apple chips are quickly becoming a popular snack in grocery stores, health food stores and coffee shops. These delectable snacks are great for eating on the go – especially for hungry kids.
The downside? While most are made with good ingredients, there are a few brands that have added sugar and preservatives. Plus, a snack bag can cost a small fortune – upwards of $3-5 for a two-serving bag (about 2 oz).
You can make apple chips for way cheaper and with wholesome ingredients in your own kitchen….” Continues on the website: Apple Chips with Cinnamon Essential Oil.
Gluten-free Apple Cinnamon Scones
“Nothing is cozier on a rainy day than a warm scone with a piping hot cup of tea! These Apple-Cinnamon Scones are gluten free and easy to make. Fresh organic apple, gluten free flour mix (you can use rice, almond, coconut, or a blend), a cage-free egg, milk and maple syrup go into the scones, and if you’re feeling like something a little sweeter you can top them with cinnamon sugar and/or delicious maple syrup glaze.” Continues on the website: Gluten-free Apple Cinnamon Scones.
Gluten-free Apple Pie Pudding
“So apparently there are two types of people: those who pick pumpkin and those who favor apple as their favorite Fall flavor. I’m clearly in the minority as I fall into the latter category! However, while my Pinterest feed is rapidly filling up with Fall, pumpkin and the color orange, it’s still over 90F here most of the time. Which doesn’t exactly get me in the mood for traditional Fall foods, no matter how much I love them. So, I came up with this Apple Pie Pudding: it has all the flavor of my favorite slightly caramelized apple pie, but it’s chilled, smooth and delicious to boot. No need to sweat or slave to enjoy this taste of Fall!” Continues on the website: Gluten-free Apple Pie Pudding.
Gluten Free Apple Butter Layer Cake
“This moist and tender, lightly spiced yellow cake, filled with smooth apple butter and topped with a very special apple-flavored traditional buttercream frosting, is more than worth your time.” Continues on the website: Gluten Free Apple Butter Layer Cake.
