Chef Katie’s Tips

No Refined Sugar or Syrup? I’m on a mission to get rid of empty calories.  This dessert doesn’t use any refined sugar, maple syrup, or other refined sweetener.  The broiler caramelizes the natural sugars in the apples for plenty of sweetness

Apple Varieties: Choose some sweet, delicious apples. You can try any of your favorite varieties like Fuji, gala, Honeycrisp, Jonagold, or Braeburn.  You can even set up an apple “tasting”, with 3 different varieties.  

What is Broiling? Broiling is simply grilling from above. With a grill, the flame is below the food. With broiling, the flame is above.
