One item I always have on hand are apples, and they don't usually last very long in our fruit bowl. Somehow, I noticed that our pile of Macintoshes were turning a little so I decided to cook them up for our regular French Toast Sunday.
First, I peeled and cored them.
Then I went in search of spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and, of course, a bit of sea salt.
I first thought to sautee them in butter and glaze them with pure maple syrup, a staple in our pantry, but then I saw my bottle of Maple Agave Nectar and knew that this would make a wonderful sweetener. The combination of spices made the kitchen smell like winter because you know, in my house winter smells like maple glazed apples.
