Beat the Heat

I had some Transparent Apples in my kitchen that my friend Cindy gave me. They are my favorite apple, they remind me of my Grandma Tate. She made apple sauce with them, and pies, and fried apples….oh so good.

Yesterday was way too hot to turn on the oven so I had this great idea to try an apple crisp in the Traeger.

I sliced up all the apples I had, about 8 or 9, I think, and threw them in my medium cast iron skillet.

I ground up some oats and then mixed the oat flour with brown sugar and cinnamon and tossed the apples in the mixture.

Then, of course, everyone knows the topping of a crisp is oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter…

Pressed on top, although when Rick saw this, he said it needed more topping, so I made a little more and added it. But I didn’t take a picture, so you’ll just have to trust me on this.

And then into the traeger for about 40 minutes

Ta-Daaa!!!

The only thing is, that Rick’s theory is, if it was cooked in the Traeger,

then HE made it.

Because anything cooked in his traeger was made by a man.

He did light it. I’ll give him that.
