Am I crazy to be crazy about roast apples?
Seriously I make them all the time then stuff them everywhere: in yoghurt, in nice cream (frozen banana - coming soon😋), in roast chicken or roast lamb, or even just by themselves with a dash of sea salt.
Apples are one of the most beneficial foods you can eat - one apple a day, remember?
They are a fantastic prebiotic (what gut bacteria feeds on) and full of enzymes, which aids digestion. Of course, enzymes are killed by the heat during the cooking process but their nutritional quality remains.
As a matter of fact, my go-to remedy when I’ve had too much to eat or need a little digestive support is a crisp apple.
❗️Apples belong to the DIRTY DOZEN, the twelve most sprayed foods. Thus make sure you buy organic.
You will need:
- 4 large apples, sweet variety like Gala or Pink Lady
- sea salt
- 1 tbsp. butter
Preheat your oven to 180°C and lay baking paper onto your oven tray.
If the apples are not organic, peel them. Cut into four and remove the pit.
Melt the butter in the oven.
Place the apples into a large bowl, sprinkle with salt and cinnamon, drizzle with the melted butter. Mix well and place onto the baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes. Some varieties will require a little longer.
