Autumn Is Afoot (Apples & Walnuts with Cinnamon Caramel Sauce)

I like the word “afoot.”

On foot.

     In action.

          In progress.

Autumn wasn’t meant to be experienced indoors.  It requires participation…

With apples and camera in hand, I went exploring.

Where to take the picture?  Hmm….

                                                                                                                                                                                  (Disregard the photographer in the spoon…)

While I debate this dilemma, allow me to share the recipe.

Apples & Walnuts With Cinnamon Caramel Sauce

1 tart apple (per person), cored and sliced

1/4 c. toasted walnuts (per person)

Cinnamon Caramel Sauce:

4 T. butter

1/2 c. brown sugar

2 T. milk

1/2 t. vanilla

1/2 t. cinnamon

Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.  Stir in brown sugar, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.  Increase heat slightly and bring mixture to a boil.  Cook and stir until “caramelly” consistency.  (I like my sauce thinner; use your judgement.)  Cool slightly and drizzle over apples and walnuts.  Enjoy!

As to where to take that final shot…

It’s Autumn!

Now go outside and play.

Enjoying all things afoot,
