Last fall I was blessed with several large boxes of apples from my aunt’s apple tree. I wanted to make sure they didn’t go to waste. So I canned apples in syrup, applesauce, apple butter and apple cider, dehydrated apples and made and canned apple pie filling. FOR WEEKS! Now I get to enjoy the fruits of my labor (oh my, I said ‘Fruits” of my labor. See what I did there??)
My favorite thing to make with these preserved apples is apple crumble dessert using the apple slices in light syrup. It’s delicious and comes together quickly for a delicious dessert when company surprises you with a visit. Bada-boom, bada-bing and dessert is being served! Looks and tastes like you toiled away in the kitchen for hours. (shhhh…)
First I pull out my ingredients: a pint of home-canned apples in syrup, all-purpose flour, quick-cooking oats (I usually blend about 1/2 quick cooking and 1/2 old fashioned oats), brown sugar, cloves, ground nutmeg (I often substitute cinnamon) a pinch of salt, vanilla extract, softened butter and chopped nuts. I prefer pecans since we have some amazing pecan trees right here on our property.
Now for the hard and complicated directions (because you know I love complicated recipes here at the Homestead) 😉
In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients, cut in softened butter and put bowl aside. Drain the canned apples, reserving the syrup and pour drained apples in an approximately 6×6 casserole dish. Sprinkle 1/2 of the oat mixture over the apples and fold to coat.
Pour the reserved syrup over the apples and top with the remaining oat mixture. I like to dot the top of the crumble with small pats of butter. But that’s just my preference & not really part of the recipe. Then I pop the casserole dish into a 350-degree oven for 30 – 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
No really, that’s it! Hey, if a recipe isn’t delicious, easy, quick AND adaptable it doesn’t hang around long in my kitchen. This one’s a keeper!
Perfection! And making this home-made dessert is good for the budget since it’s using home-canned apples and standard pantry ingredients. If you’ve canned apples in syrup and you’re wondering what you can make that’s delicious and quick – give it a try.
