Posted by on February 10, 2015

Fat Cat Sauces - Sweet and Smoky Apples - Spicy DessertJill, a member of the Fat Cat family, created this exotic and easy dessert recipe, which uses the Mexican-inspired flavors of our Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost to enhance the tart sweetness of apples and also for a satisfying hint of smoky flavor. She says you can enjoy the finished dish on its own, as a unique topping for ice cream or (her preference) over waffles with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Thanks, Jill!

Ingredients:

2 apples, diced into 1/2-inch chunks
Pinch of salt
1 tsp of olive oil
1.5 TB of Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost sauce
2 TB of raw sugar or honey
2 oz dry medium bodied wine

Instructions:

Heat olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat.

Add apples and pinch of salt, stir and let cook until the apples have softened slightly, about 5 minutes.

Add sugar or honey, stir to combine and then lower heat to medium low and cook until apples start to brown slightly, another 3-4 minutes.

Once the apples have browned some, raise heat to medium high, add wine and stir, making a point to blend any caramelized bits in the pan into the wine. After another 2-3 minutes, the liquid will start to glaze the apples. At that point, turn off

When there is only a little bit of liquid still left in the pan, turn off heat and add the Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost. Stir well to coat the apples and serve warm.

Enjoy!
