I had a grandmother who didn’t cook with measuring cups and spoons; rather, cooking was like an art to her–part
creativity, part experimentation. Unfortunately, all her masterpieces died with her as she left no record of any of her recipes. I’d rather leave some reference for my cooking inspirations, but like Granny, it’s all in the creativity so enjoy playing with this one.
Apples and Greens with Honey, Cider and Garlic
3 large handfuls chopped fresh greens (remember they cook down so 3 handfuls was enough for my daughter and me as a side dish)
half of a golden delicious apple, sliced thinly
half an onion caramelized
cider–approximately 1/4 cup
3 cloves pressed garlic
olive oil–drizzled to lightly coat bottom of pan
salt and pepper to taste
Lightly coat bottom of pan with oil and add pressed garlic. Heat on medium heat until garlic starts to sizzle. Add cider, apples, caramelized onions, and honey. Stir and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Turn off burner and remove pan. Stir in greens until just wilted then serve with salt and pepper to taste.
