Using Creme Fraiche Part II: Sauteed Apple with Honey
Happy Friday everyone! Just in time for the weekend, here’s another quick idea for using creme fraiche. If you, like I, try to eat as little sugar as possible, then creme fraiche can be your new best friend. Want to add the creaminess of ice cream to a bowl full of berries? A small dollop of creme fraiche fits the bill in the loveliest way, adding the richness of ice cream for about 50 calories and no added sugar.
Or, if you’re having a hard time putting your hands on good berries (there goes the season, sniff…), try this quick-n-lovely sauteed apple, one my favorite fall treats. In 10 minutes your house will smell of cinnamon and your mouth will be full of soft warm apple, creamy and slightly sweet with a drizzle of honey (that’s a jar of heavenly Ames Farm Dutch Clover in the background).
The creme fraiche melts over the apple slices, gah, so incredible. Top with a few chopped almonds for crunch.
Sauteed Apple with Honey & Creme Fraiche
1 tsp. butter
1 apple, cored and sliced thin
shakes of cinnamon
1 Tbsp. creme fraiche
In a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add apple slices and a few shakes of cinnamon and stir to coat. Cover the pan and cook the apples until nicely soft but not falling apart, stirring a few times, about 8 minutes. Serve warm apple slices topped with creme fraiche and a drizzle honey, if using.
