Rooftop Harvest

Okay, so it’s not exactly a bumper crop, maybe 25 apples total between our two container-grown trees, but it’s our little harvest, and we’re proud of it. The apples taste really good and have that great crisp sound when you bite into them. They also make a nice applesauce.


1/2 cup orange juice
6 apples
1 cinnamon stick

Rinse the apples in water and dry. Do not peel. Cut into quarters and core. Add apples to a heavy pot with orange juice and cinnamon stick. Cover the pot and cook over medium heat till the apples are soft. Remove cinnamon stick. Run through a mill (or press through a fine mesh strainer). Serve warm.

  1. I want to be there. NOW! On that roof, eating that applesauce in one of those chairs (are they periwinkle?), talking gyno-culinary-urbia with you…

    Thanks for stopping by our blog and commenting the other day.

  2. what? No recipe for pork chops to go with that applesauce from your Big Apple apples? Any room on the roof top for a containerized pig for slaughter? You would be able to bring home the bacon, and fry it up in a pan as well! Think of the blogging topics that would emerge!

    I too, noticed the very chic color of the Adirondack chairs. Very inviting…

    “Big Apple apples” – now why didn’t I think of that?

    As for the pork chops, I will take that as a request for a pork chop recipe, and will see what I can come up with for you. Seeing as Rosh Hashanna is tomorrow,however, I’ll wait a few days…

    You are welcome anyday to join me on said rooftop…How’s your Main Mama? I’ll try to call her again this weekend, we’ve been playing phone tag.

  4. Interestingly simple recipe. I think I’ll make some warm applecause tonight. I have only ever eaten it cold, but that sounds good.

  5. TBTAM–My Main Mama is doing great. Starts radiation this week, which is kinda freaky, but, otherwise, she’s great. Thanks for checking in with her, and for being there for all of us through all this. Hugs.

  6. Oh man, I can’t believe I missed your return to the blogging world! I’m going to have to read all of the entries I’ve missed now!
