I don't usually post about non- knitting things, but last week, I made an apple tart for Rosh Hashanah and I was pretty pleased about it.
First I started with a mix of apples. A few Gala and a few macs, so that I had some sweet and some tart:
I was lucky that I didn't need to use all of the apples, so I got to eat a few of them! :) They were delicious. I mean, they were Gala and Granny Smith (oh, I crack myself up). But they were still delicious!
Here are all of the ingredients, waiting to be made into a tart:
A few closeups:
The recipe called for apple brandy, but the guy at the liquor store said I could use regular brandy instead of apple brandy because I had the apples in it themselves, so I did, and it saved me from having to buy a $20 bottle of apple brandy that I would probably never use again.
The pre-cooked tart:
And the tart after it came out of the oven:
It was pretty darn delicious if I do say so myself.
