First off, baked apples are good on their own. So, when this recipe called for dunking one into alcohol, I expected it to be delicious. Correctly. I used the Joy of Cooking recipe for a baked apple. Because the Joy of Cooking is my everything.
In the latest Apple news, the company has branched out from computers and technology into the new field of books about computers and technology. Namely, themselves. Super nice photography in here, but I feel like the price tag is pretty unjustified. Sort of how I feel about their new products, too, but that’s another blog. It is pretty though.
132. Apple Toddy
(Use small bar glass.)
- 1 table-spoonful of fine white sugar.
- 2 oz. of cider brandy.
- ½ of a baked apple.
- Fill the glass two-thirds full of boiling water, and grate a little nutmeg on top.
BN: Really nice! Tastes sort of like a less cider-y hot cider. Good brown sugar (yum) and apple notes, obviously, and once again the butter (from the apple) lends smoothness. Strong cinnamon and harsh alcohol aromas on the nose (don’t breathe in while drinking – a tip I generally use on all hot alcohol beverages); otherwise very delicious. Could easily throw a few of those back on a cold winter night.
PiC: Yum, that’s good! A very nice winter drink. You’d have to serve it with a spoon to be able to eat the apple. I like it.
