A Galley Recipe: Sweet and Sour Apple Beets

Mr. and Mrs. Henry (center), owners of "Alvilda Mae", an Oceanis 41 offered to share a new favorite galley recipe this week. 
We can't wait to try it.

Sweet and Sour Apple Beets

Preheat oven to 375.
Grease a casserole dish..

Mix together and put into it:
   2 cups chopped cooked beets
   2 cups apples
   1/4 to 1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
   1 1/2 teaspoons salt
   A generous grating of nutmeg
 **Cook's note: If the apples are very tart, add: (1 tablespoon sugar) If they are bland: (2 tablespoons lemon juice)

Dot with 2 to 3 tablespoons butter
Cover and bake about one hour.

Cook's Note:

Sailing in the Charleston, SC area, enjoying the great crew at St Bart's Yachts, I've been experimenting with finding new recipes.  This was my first time to try this one.  I used it as a side dish with barbecued pork chops.  Of course I had to make some some changes, because I have  a very limited supply of spices on board, I had no nutmeg, and even though my apples were not tart I chose to add both sugar and juice from 1/4 of a lemon.  My husband and I thought it was a delicious dish. I'll definitely make this one again.

This gorgeous photo was sent in from one of our single handed cruisers leaving Charleston, SC and heading down to the Jacksonville area. The photo was taken with a Go Pro camera attached to a kite. Thanks for sharing Francisco, your Oceanis 41 makes a pretty picture.
