red wine apple crisp with ice cream

Red Wine Apple Crisp

Red wine and apples….say what??? Yes, this is the best combination of all the crisps. The red wine mixed in with these apples really brings out the tart flavor in this red wine apple crisp. But don’t go crazy with some $60 bottle of Cabernet. A cheaper red will do. Save that prize wine for a rainy day or just drink it all when baking and have no regrets the following morning.

This is really EASY to make. It has a short list of ingredients and you may even be able to convince someone in your family with good baking skills to do it for you. That’s what I did to Ginny. I call it vicarious baking.

All you have to do for this red wine apple crisp is slice up some apples and dump all the ingredients into a baking dish. For apples, it doesn’t matter a whole lot which ones you choose. We had some Fujis that worked well. You could use Granny Smith apples and give it a bit more tart.

On the home front, spring has been generous this year. Ginny collected no less than 25 POUNDS of mulberries from the tree in our front yard. She pulled out the ice cream maker and put together the best gall dern mulberry ice cream I have ever tasted. Stay tuned for pics of that treat. We were so fortunate to buy a house where there were already mature fruit trees. The fruit gods smiled on us this year and gave us peaches, too! That means peach cobbler and maybe even peach ice cream.

Back to the crisp…you want to keep an eye on the crisp when it is baking to make sure the top does not get too brown. If it starts to brown too much, just cover it with some aluminum foil.

When done, you should get this nice golden brown color on top. As you can see, this has a lot of oats on it. I really love the texture the oats give it and it’s healthier than doing it with just flour. The secret ingredient in this is nutmeg. Nutmeg is my favorite spice of all. Serve it with some ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
