Mercado Kitchen: Apple-Walnut Crisp

I know what you’re thinking… you’re tired of waiting for stonefruit to come into season and you’re ready to bid farewell to citrus and apples. But don’t say goodbye just yet, especially when these April showers leave you craving some comfort food! Send apples off in style with this delicious Apple Crisp with walnuts and Creme Fraiche!  You’ll need:

  • 8 Apples from K&J Orchards
  • 1/2 lb of Walnuts from Winters Fruit Tree
  • 1 cup of Oats
  • Melted butter
  • 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar, split in half
  • 1/2 Lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • Creme Fraiche
Apples & Walnuts

Apples & Walnuts

This recipe is super easy to execute (you probably have the other stuff in your kitchen after getting the apples and walnuts at MCM!) and a big crowd pleaser. My friend Sarah and I made it at our last dinner party and it was well-loved. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Chop the apples into big, half inch chunks. Mix them with the lemon juice, cinnamon, salt, and half of the brown sugar.

Pour Apple Mixture into Baking Dish

Pour Apple Mixture into Baking Dish

Pour the apple mixture into a buttered baking dish.  Spread the apples out evenly throughout.

Pre-Baked Crisp
Loosely chop the walnuts and sprinkle them, together with the oats and the remaining brown sugar, over the top of the apples.  Stick the baking dish in the oven.  After about 30 minutes, or until the apples are tender when pierced with a fork, you can pull the crisp out and let it cool.

Add a dollop of creme fraiche (ice cream works, too) on top of each serving, and then you’re ready to eat. Here’s a picture of Sarah digging in!
