You do not have to cook them first. Here is a recipe for apple turnovers. It's from a blog called "Simply Recipes" she does a great job of walking you through the process - http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives/002162apple_turnovers.php
Good luck and happy cooking!
You are a saviour dawn, my son came home today. And told us as he was about to go to bed. That he needed Caramelized Apples, done tonight! After we clucked like headless chicken's around the room. We came across your web site. It was a very simple to do after we watched your video!!
Fingers crossed for his school cooking tomorrow, thanks once again.
Sorry it's taken a while to get back to you. As for your question, he was the only one who had put the effort in. Everyone else, gave half hearted excuse's. The knock on effect is; he want's to take up cooking at school even more. He no longer listens to the jibes, from other boys. Which has made us so proud of him.
That is great to hear Kevin. Indeed, you must be proud of him! It seems the younger the start the better it is. Not only will he live a healthier life if he really knows how to cook, he will also never be out of work, because everyone has to eat! Cheers.
I realize I should be using cooking apples..Tody I only had Ambrosia on hand. There was too much moisture released by the apples (assuming this is why hard cooking apples are recommended). Is there any way to solve the problem with the extra moisture, besides using another type of apple? They were like boiled apples! :S
As you discovered, some apples just don't cook up very well. I don't know what you planned on using these for but it will be difficult to change their texture. Maybe try mixing them into something soft like oatmeal for a bit of added sweetness. You can treat them sort of like a compote and serve them over something like ice cream.
Golden delicious, Granny Smith, Crispin, Cortland, and Winesap apples will work better for next time. Hope this helps!
I run a hot lunch program at our local elementary school, and one of the items I added this year was a carmelized apple and grilled cheese panini. I added a pinch of cinnamon to the apples. The kids LOVE them..so do the teachers :)
