Blooming and Baking

It's been only FIVE DAYS since the plant was given to me and now I know it will be white flowered! Amazing growth! No fragrances yet but I'm sure they will emit soon. I haven't even watered it yet!

This morning I baked an apple-raisin crisp. Good that I was able to share it! The apples were from a bag that was in the freezer. WHAT? Well, they were four large Honey Crisps that I had dehydrated for 7 hours on September 25, 2020. Recipe at bottom of page. I used an 8x11x2 inch release-lined OLD glass pan at 375° for 45 minutes instead of what the recipe suggested and I also added a few raisins.
I rehydrate the chips (and raisins) by pouring about 1 1/2 cups boiling water over them and let them soak in the bowl for about 45 minutes while I blend the topping ingredients. 
Apple Crisp

4 Cups sliced apples (about 6 medium)

3/4 C packed brown sugar

1/2 C flour

1/2 C rolled oats (can substitute 1C graham cracker crumbs for flour and oats)

3/4 t cinnamon

3/4 t nutmeg

1/3 C soft butter

Heat oven 375°

Place sliced apples in greased square pan 8x8x2

Blend remaining ingredients until mixture is crumbly.

Spread over apples.

Bake 30-35 minutes until apples are tender and topping is golden brown. 



  1. Love apple crisp!! Your plants have really taken off.

  2. Love any Crisp!

    Those flowers must smell wonderfully.

    Sadly, we sneeze from any flowers. -sigh- I'd love to get some bulbs, but know, we'd not be able to enjoy the blooms.
