Apple Tart with Maple Syrup Balsamic Vinegar glaze

It’s official, I am utterly, totally, completely in love with and obsessed with Maple Syrup and Balsamic Vinegar, and I was explaining this love with two of my friends the other night, who were intrigued by the idea that I could make something that sounds so strange together taste good.  

I decided that I was going to prove my culinary skills and taste buds correct, and bake them a apple tart.  

I got the basic recipe and idea from here, http://serenae.com/2011/05/13/deceptive-apple-tart/ I modified it according to my own specific tastes.  

Things I did different from the basic recipe:

  • I tossed my apples in balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, sea salt and a little sugar. (I eye-balled and taste tested it)
  • I rubbed the crust in cinnamon, a little sugar and more sea salt. 
  • I stacked the apples a little bit more pie like and inorganic, beautification of the pie was the least of my concerns. (Don’t tell decorative baking artists, shushhhhh) 

Once again I was pleased with the flavors and the pie came out fantastic. My friends were pleased and I made believers out of them.  (Both of these friends I will be living with for 2 weeks until my new apartment is ready, and one of them, Mike, exclaimed that I have proved my worth) ❤ 

Once again, let me know if you have any questions about my process or fundamentals of cooking, flavours or if you just feel like talking to us lovely blog authors. Email us: artsandcraftsinthekitchen@gmail.com
