Eat’n Up ~ Canned Apple Things…

October 30, 2010

We are one week away from our canning party and we’re so excited.  In seven days our home will be filled with canners who are ready to EAT UP what WE’VE PUT UP!!  So, in preparation for this glutteness on slot of food, Matt and I are going to start sharing with you all the canned goodies that enhance our daily meals.

Tonight…APPLES!  Matt is making a pork tenderloin stuffed with fresh celery and onions and dressed with everything APPLES.  Matt first cooks the pork in the oven which releases its tasty juices that Matt adds to some Spartan Apple Sauce to make a sauce for both the meat and fresh garden potatoes.

 Then, he browns the meat in a skillet while reducing and thickening the apple sauce topping.  Watching Matt cook is the most relaxing and wonderful sight.  It is like listening to your favorite music.  He spoons a little taste of this and that into his mouth and then adds a sprinkle of salt here and a dash of this there.  I love it.  Until I started canning I never really appreciated the joy of watching someone in the kitchen enjoying making a tasty meal.  Now, I can watch in amazement as he turns our canned preserved into a delicious meal.


Once the pork is sufficiently browned and the sauce is thickened and reduced Matt plates the meal and adds a spoonful or two of our candied pickled apples to the side. 

This was a wonderful dinner and I am thankful to have such a wonderful cook for a husband and partner.  The candied-pickled apples were so divine that Matt asked if I would consider making 3 more batches…we hope this will get us through until next fall.
