Savory Sautéed Apples

This is another great year for apples. Not only are there free apples everywhere, literally just for the picking, but they are also showing up in my CSA basket. So I figured it’s time to move beyond apples for breakfast and dessert and make some into a main dish for dinner. Here’s what we had the other night:


Savory Sautéed Apples

  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 large apples, cored and sliced
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 t dried thyme or rosemary
  • sausage, bacon, or ham (optional)

Sauté the onion and garlic in a little bit of olive oil. Add the apples, balsamic vinegar, and thyme/rosemary. Continue cooking until the apples are tender, about 5-10 minutes. If you want, during the last few minutes of cooking add two small sliced sausages (I use garlic sausage), 4 strips of cooked, crumbled bacon, or 1 cup of diced ham. Serve with the grain of your choice.

Local analysis:

Local – apples and onions (from CSA), garlic and rosemary  (from my garden)

Non local – olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sausage
