Jennifer Cornbleet’s Apple Crisp and a Raw Cookbook Giveaway!
a recipe by Jennifer Cornbleet
- 4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced ($3.00)
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice ($.50)
- 1/2 cup pitted medjool dates, soaked in water for 10 minutes and drained ($1.00)
- 1/2 cup raisins, soaked, soaked in water for 10 minutes and drained ($.50)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cups crumble topping (see recipe below)
This is a recipe from Jennifer Cornbleet’s Revised Edition of Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People. I love this book. It’s among the best out there for doable raw food. The recipes are simple but delicious, and Jenny has super easy and clear instructions. Look out below for a chance to win your own copy!
Thinly slice 2 of the apples and chop the remaining 2 apples. Put the sliced apples and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice in a medium bowl. Toss gently and set aside. Put the chopped apples, dates, raisins, cinnamon, and remaining tablespoon of lemon juice in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until smooth. Add to the sliced apples, stirring until well combined.
To assemble the crisp, press 1/2 cup of the topping (see below) into an even layer in an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Spread the apple filling on top using a rubber spatula. With your hands, knead pieces of the remaining 1 1/2 cups of topping until they stick together. Lay these pieces of topping on the filling to form a cobbled appearance, allowing some of the filling to peek through. Serve chilled, at room temperature, or warm (see warming option). Cover with plastic wrap and stored in the refrigerator, Apple Crisp will keep for 3 days.
- 2 cups raw walnuts or pecans ($4.00)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut ($1.00)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup raisins, unsoaked ($1.00)
- 8 medjool dates, unsoaked ($.80)
- 1/2 cup whole cane sugar or maple sugar (optional, for a sweeter topping)
Place the walnuts, coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a food processor fitted with an S blade and process until coarsely ground. Add the raisins and dates and process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and begins to stick together. Don’t over process. Add the optional whole cane sugar and process briefly. Store in a sealed container. Crumb Topping will keep for one month in the refrigerator or three months in the freezer.
Warming option: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Turn off the oven, insert the crisp, and warm for 15 minutes. Alternatively, heat for 30 minutes in a food dehydrator set at 105 degrees F.
