Baked Pippin Apples
This is the kind of food that takes us to a place in our childhood where everything was simpler. Each season brought fruit specific to the season, which made the experience of picking and tasting it unique.
The pippin apple, although it is not native of Portugal, it is quite characteristic of Sintra, we even have a Pippin Apple Festival in early Autumn.They start forming in the orchards in the last weeks of the summer. With a color between green and rust, the picking of this rough looking fruit marked the arrival of autumn and the fall of the leaves.
And to keep us warm in those colder late afternoons, few things taste better than oven baked Pippin Apples with the right spices.
This recipe can be made with any type of apple, but the Pippin variety has a characteristic flavor marked by its acidity and density that can not be found in any other variety.
