Its apple picking season here in Western Massachusetts, so to celebrate the season I am making apple bakers. If you have never had a baked Cortland, or Mutsu apple with some maple syrup, cinnamon, raisins and pecans you are missing out on quite a treat.
We shot a little 3 minute video with me at the potter’s wheel making an apple baker the other day. Just me, the wheel, quiet, no instruction. It’s a bit different from my videos made in 2008 by expertvillage with the two-minute instructional clips.
Watch it here!
I just started making apple bakers recently for an event we have here in Western Massachusetts called Cider Days. I’ve been having some fun with them, and this is what I came up with for my finished product.
But my question is this, do you think they can serve more than one purpose? I think you could roast garlic in it. My friend Mary thinks you can bake a pear in it. So I gave her one of my seconds today to do a little research and developement with it. We like to call it R&D. Friends like R&D!
