Yes Virginia! You can have your apples and eat them too! I've posted previously about fermented apples and the effect they have on my blood sugar. Well that was way too long ago and I never did get back to it, or make another apple pie or decide on a good crust for it. So I apologize to those who were looking forward to that!! It's apple season once again and I'm interested in apples. So I made a video to show you, first of all, how to ferment the apples. Some people add salt, but if you use fresh whey from kefir or homemade yogurt, you don't have to add salt. They turn out lovely without and you don't have salty apples then.
Crust ideas anyone? It needs to be a crust that will not get soggy when baked with the apples. If you have a good one feel free to share it in the comments. If you want to benefit from the pro-biotics then eat these as is without heating them. I sprinkle a little sweetener and cinnamon on them and just eat them as a side dish.
