All about Apples - October 25, 2022

We started by making apple-cranberry sauce without a recipe. We peeled a bunch of apples, roughly chopped them and put them in a pot with a bag of cranberries, about 1/4 cup water and some sugar. We cooked them until the apples softened and then placed in a food processor for a super smooth sauce.

While the apples were cooking we heard from Eric Dawson, a farm educator from The Yellow Farmhouse Education Center. Zoom recording below.

We also discussed the history of apples according to Michal Pollan's podcast and raised some interesting points we learned from Eric: grafting, apple breading for texture and flavor (for cooking, eating and ciders), and spoke about how apples can be a symbolic food.


Please watch the first 30 minutes of Dan Barber's Episode of Che'f Table on Netflix. We will watch the ending (last 17 minutes in class). Our discussion of the Farm to Table movement will rely mostly on this episode, so please come prepared :)

We will also speak with Tom Deacon, founder of Fable Farm in Ossining. This is a great opportunity to learn from a local farmer, so get a question ready for him.

Let me know if you have any questions, Renana
