yesterday, i had gone to the library to get a couple of cooking books. i do this every once in a while to get some new ideas / new recipes. one book was for stews which had a ‘fruit stew’ recipe and thought i ought to try something similar, based on the recipe
this morning i was to the store for ingredients. bought 4 apples (4 different types), 4 pears (2 different types), prunes (about a cup), and 1 lemon. at home i got out the slow cooker adding 1/3 cup maple syrup and 2/3 cup water. then i pealed, cored and eighthed the pears & apples. grated the lemon peal, then pealed and halved it. tossed in the prunes and added 1/2 cup dried cranberries. lastly, i stirred everything and cooked it the fruits on low for 6 hours
the result…. very tasty!
today we all met up at the shopping mall and got a few things (my one sister needing a new bag to get some of her new purchases home with her). we also found the bee’s wax store that my one sister found online and its located here in burnaby. bee’s wax is very hard to find, and this store does lots of national and international shipping and even supplies martha stewart!
