Caramelized Apples

These savoury caramelized apples are the perfect accompaniment to pork. If you want to make them super easy to make, wrap all the ingredients in tin foil and pop onto the BBQ or into the oven.

Have you ever googled “internet dating”?  If you do, you will get about 26,800,000 results in 0.17 seconds. I have not had to google this term before, but having been recently accused of some behaviour I thought I would. So, supposedly I set up a fake persona to ‘date’ someone. That means that out of the millions of websites out there that deal with internet dating, I chose the same one that she did. And then I created a persona that would match her criteria! So, once I had got the right website, I would have to find the right person. Given that people use avatar’s and screen names, this in itself would have been quite a feat. But, I have been accused of being capable of this. I am so clever apparently that I have been told I maintained this ‘affair’ for quite some time. I am not sure how I managed to do all of this, but it goes to confirm one thing for me – I am always going to be responsible in this person’s mind for all the bad things that befall her. Apparently, I am the source of all evil, much like Eve in the Garden of Eden when she accepted the apple, it was all the snake’s fault! It is much easier to blame me, than take responsibility herself. As for apples, well, they make the perfect accompaniment to a roast pork in my opinion and are better served up simply cooked, when you want more than a sauce.

  1. Oh my word! what a thing to be accused of. Perhaps you should make this lovely apple dish and tell the accuser where to shove it…ooopps! that might have been a bit out of line.
    I love cooked apples. My nan used to make the most tasty apple and blackberry pie, and my mum would make just as tasty stuffed apples

  2. Crikey, that’s quite some story! Poor you. At least you got to eat that delicious looking pork with those yummy apples to cheer yourself up 😉 Love the simplicity of this and one I will be trying.

    1. it is very simple to make 🙂 I thought the whole thing a laugh, but it has taken me a while to write about it!

  3. Aaah, it’s a bad business to be put under suspicion by another person like this. No matter how you might laugh it off – it still hurts that a “friend” might think you capable of such a thing. As for the caramelised apples – I think there’s few things that “do” caramelisation as well as an apple does. 🙂

    1. thankfully for me, this person is not a friend! I would not be able to laugh it off if she were. Thanks for the visit jennypaws 🙂

  4. I am still amazed at people, just when you think you know someone,..they’ll throw something at you that really hurts…people surprise me everyday!

  5. Well arent you the clever one – fancy being able to do all that AND make caramelised apples 😉
    Which sound divine by the way!

  6. How utterly ridiculous, Tandy. As if you have the time or the inclination for such a thing! Yummy looking apples. I’ve copied it for when we next have roast pork. 😉 xxx

  7. Whoever is accusing you of such things sounds, well. Crazy.

    These apples sound crazy also. CRAZY DELICIOUS, that is!

  8. Hi Eve, I mean Tandy! 😉
    Sometimes people just need someone to blame… I loved caramelized apples as a child and this recipe sounds perfect for the “grown up” me. Thanks for sharing 🙂 !

  9. A tasty apple recipe!! I love sage with apple: such an English classic but I love the added Cabernet sauvingnon vinegar here! Yum Yum Yum! I also love the new look from your beautiful blog! Lovely too! 😉
