This is my first choice when faced with the dilemma...
TOO MANY APPLES & NO ONE IS EATING THEM.
I haven't found it really matters what kind of apple you use. I've used Granny Smith's, Braeburn, Gala, Fugi and Golden Delicious - all with tasty results.
Today however we had an abundance of Braeburn & Gala apples.
This particular recipe has the perfect blend of spices and citrus juice, from your friend and mine...Ina Garten.
Ina's Perfect Apple Crisp:
3 lbs. apples, peeled & sliced
2 T. orange juice
2 T. lemon juice
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 c. oatmeal, quick or old fashioned
1/2 lb. butter, diced (You WON'T regret it...)
Mix apples with orange & lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl and set aside.
In bowl of mixer place all ingredients for topping and combine until it has a coarse sandy texture.
Pour apples into a 9x13 inch pan and gently cover with topping.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve with whipping cream or enjoy it au natural.
