We had a great Mendon community clean-up day a few weeks ago. There were enough people to help clean up and winterize over 16 yards, and it was a perfect day for it. As part of the event, Slide Ridge prepared lunch for the participants. We made a delicious honey-baked apple for dessert that everyone seemed to enjoy. It was so simple, we thought we should share the recipe.
I've eaten a lot of apples through the years, and I love them in many forms. This recipe is a new twist that I had never thought of before until Jean made them for lunch. She actually served them as a side dish, though I could easily see enjoying this for dessert with some fresh whipped cream on top!
This has been a record honey year for Slide Ridge (and hopefully many other Utah beekeepers). The late summer rains have produced lots of late summer flowers which extended the honey flows well past their normal time frames.
