In the kitchen: Apple Crisp

A few weeks ago I was asked to help out with a Relief Society Meeting all about Food Storage and Preparation. I made the dessert for hte evening and it needed to come from food storage.

Well the thing is, we don’t have one. As soon as we settle (as in next year when we move out to Raymond – which we are doing after Regan is done residency) it is one of the first things I will be focusing on. But for this event I got some dried apples from two friends out of their food storages. To make these desserts.

So you take a pot of apple slices.
Food Storage Apple Crisp starts with these

Cover them with water. Add two vanilla beans (sliced and scrape the seeds into it too) and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Add sugar and boil it. On a slow boil for a while.
Needs a little longer

This is how the filling is supposed to look when it’s ready. A yummy saucy pie filling or apple crisp filling.

So then you put it in the pans and add your topping. I made mine out of oatmeal, flour, sugar, salt and butter cut it.

Then bake it just like normal apple crisp.

We served it with homemade vanilla bean ice cream. mmmmmm
Does that explain how to make it for ya?
Do you have any sort of food storage for an emergency?

Today my oven is getting fixed (FINALLY) and I feel the need to bake multiple TREATS. 🙂

    Kathleen Boland - I’m great with canned soup but need to expand on the grains. I can fruit in the summer too. I have a freezer of rhubarb, beans, raspberries and strawberries. Oh, I need to get some meat. I guess in an emergency that we all become vegetarians…oops. Great reminder Rhonda.

    KellyLady - My biggest challenge with food storage is space! I have very little of it! But what I have started doing is buying a couple extra cans of soup or beans or stocking up on pastas that we eat when they’re on sale. I also buy Costco size flour and store it in the huge ice cream buckets – I bake a lot so I go through it quickly but I always try to have about a month’s worth of flour on hand. This works great with sugar as well!

    Tisha - I’ve been thinking alot about food storage lately. We have a decent supply of many things, but others are sadly lacking!

    DeeMomof6 - I use to havea good food storage until my family had emergancies and now we are having to build it back up. I love what you did with the apple and the adding of the vanilla bean. I love inventing ways to mis up my food storage items to make every meal a little different. Congrats on the fixed oven and can’t wait to see what comes from the kitchen now 😉
