As the initial blast of what is predicted to be a huge snowstorm fell outside this morning...
... I decided to try something I'd thought about the last couple of days -- I was going to make an omelet, but use fruit instead of vegetables. In this case, that meant a Granny Smith apple.
There may in fact be many recipes out there for omelets made with fruit, but (a) I've never heard of such an omelet and (b) I didn't look for a recipe. I decided to wing it.
And the approach was pretty basic -- I peeled and chopped up one apple into small chunks, then sauteed these bits in a frying pan with about one tablespoon of butter, allspice, cinnamon, and sugar (about half a teaspoon of each). As these ingredients were cooking, I decided to throw in a few dried cranberries (one of my favorite things, and they go very well with apples in other recipes).
Then I just had to follow the basic rules of omelet making, and about five minutes later I had this:
Jeannine was dubious, but to her credit she DID eat a bit of the finished product, and deemed it "not bad". But it was really not to her taste -- she prefers savory, not sweet, omelets. To be honest, even though I enjoyed this one and ate it all (except for the bite that Jeannine took), so do I. That's why next time I plan to go savory instead of sweet, but keep the apple and the dried cranberries, and see how that works. -- PL
