Apple Season!


I picked up some apples from the farmer's market intending to bake a cake, but then I forgot the eggs so instead I cooked them and made apple-ginger spread (jelly). So yummy for breakfast or on pancakes!

Am Wochenende habe ich Äpfel vom Markt besorgt; sie haben ja jetzt Saison. Eigentlich hatte ich vor einen Kuchen zu backen, aber ich hatte die Eier vergessen...tsk, tsk. Dafür gab's dann Apfel-Ingwer Aufstrich :)


Making this is super easy! You need about 8 - 10 apples (not too tart) to fill four canning jars. Peel and chop the apples, mix with juice of one lime and place in a medium-sized pot. Add grated ginger (1 inch piece) and cook for 15 minutes until apples soften. Remove from stove and blend until smooth. Place back on stove, add 500 gr. canning sugar, mix well and bring to boil. Add a little water if necessary. Boil for 2-3 minutes. Then pour into clean canning jars, screw on lids and turn jars upside down. Cool completely - Once opened eat within a week.

Dieser Apfel-Aufstrich ist super einfach zu machen! 8 - 10 Äpfel (nicht zu säuerlich) schälen und kleinschneiden. In einen Topf mit dem Saft einer Limette geben. Etwas geriebenen Ingwer (1,5 cm Stück) zugeben und ca. 15 Minuten köcheln, bis die Äpfel weich sind. Dann von der Kochstelle nehmen und fein pürieren. Topf wieder auf die Kochplatte stellen, 500gr. Gelierzucker zugeben, gut vermengen und aufkochen. Ca. 2-3 Minuten sprudelnd kochen lassen. Dann ich vier saubere Einmachgläser geben, Deckel drauf, auf den Kopf stellen und abkühlen lassen - Nach dem Öffnen innerhalb einer Woche verzehren.


The jars looked a bit plain to me (plus I was itching to use my alphabet stamp set), so I simply adhered two tags, a larger one made from kraft paper and a smaller one in white with handstamped lettering. Also I stuck some fun washi tape all around the jar. Such an easy way to dress up a simple canning jar - ready for gift giving!

Als Bastlerin mussten die Gläser natürlich aufgehübscht werden, und zwar auf möglichst schnelle und einfache Art! Aus braunem Kraftpapier habe ich Tags ausgestanzt, aus weißem Papier etwas kleinere, die ich dann mit roter Stempelfarbe bestempelt habe. Dann habe ich das Glas noch mit einem witzigem Washi Tape beklebt und fertig - auch als Gastgeber-Geschenk geeignet!

Yummy!
Lecker!

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

  4. Good thing you forgot the eggs! This sounds much better, and likely to last much longer! Ever tried Crabapple (or Sour Apples)Butter? It's simply delicious with any poultry or pork dishes. Anyone wanting the recipe, just contact me by a comment on www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com. Look forward to hearing from you and your friends.
