by grainnep

So I’m not working yet it seems like I have no time to post new recipes !! who knew there was so much out there to occupy my free time… The last 2 months have flown by and I couldn’t honestly tell you what I do every day, apart from lots of cooking (note to self, you have to actually publish the recipes), working out, meeting friends and you know all those little house projects that have been waiting so long for you to to get to, if you only had the time…. Well I still haven’t got to them :-), And to answer again, No I don’t regret my decision, Yes I’m having a great time, and NO, I HAVE NO PLANS FOR WORK, CURRENTLY…. πŸ™‚

Now that’s off my chest, here is a list of everything I have been cooking, testing and tweaking…just to prove that I’m not actually watching lots of day time TV … and a recipe for you to try based on delicious Irish Autumn Apples. So lately we have been eating

Chop the almonds finely (but not to flour) in a food processor
Mix the egg yolks with 50gr sugar until light and creamy
Add the lemon zest, salt, almond flour and pureed apples
Whisk the egg whites and 50gr sugar into stiff peaks
Loose the apple mixture with a tablespoon of the meringue then carefully fold in the rest trying not to loose to much of the air
