Cooking with apples


Using fresh Bramley seedling apples, orange sweet potato, onion, chilli, tomatoes, thyme, almond meal, and olive oil.

Taste is like meaty stuffed apples but with sweet potato. Easy to make especially if your cooking it in your wood fired oven, I have an ESSE its proving to be quite a gem.
