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) ❤
