Appetizers

 

Apple are a very versatile fruit and can be used many different ways. Below are some scrumptious ways to enjoy them.

Apple Salsa
  • 1 medium diced Crispin or Empire apple (or half of each variety)

  • 2 large ripe tomatoes (1.5 cups), diced

  • 1/3 cup diced red onion

  • 1/2 cup diced red or green bell pepper

  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded, membranes removed and minced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced

 

Combine all ingredients; add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, cover and refrigerate for one hour. Remove from refrigerator and let warm to room temperature for 20 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips and apple slices.

Apple Dip
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 medium apples, finely chopped

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

 

Blend together cheese and mayonnaise. Add apples, nuts and lemon juice. Serve with crackers.

Apple Chips
  • 5 teaspoons sugar

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1 apple

 

Combine sugar and cinnamon. Use a mandoline or handheld slicer to very thinly slice apple crosswise into rounds, removing seeds. Put on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets in a single layer. Then sprinkle with half the cinnamon-sugar. Flip apples and sprinkle with remaining mixture. Bake in a 275°F oven, flipping once, until just crisp, about 1 ½ hours.
