Apple Cinnamon Muffins

This week I got my first delivery from Farmhouse Delivery Service. I’d been wanting to try them for a while, but finally got around to ordering a bushel of their organically raised fruit and produce. It was an interesting basket of goodies that arrived on my doorstep Wednesday afternoon. It came with two pumpkins, collard greens, carrots, four apples, lettuce with the root ball still attached (does anyone know if I can plant that?), one avocado, and three tomatoes. And I had them throw in a 1/2 pound of locally produced bacon just for good measure. Which surprisingly wasn’t the first thing I ate from the delivery, but it was really nice yesterday with breakfast and again for lunch on my bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado sandwich.

When the basket first arrived I felt a lot of pressure to cook and find recipes. For instance, collard greens. Something that I may have eaten twice in my life, and neither time very memorable. Now I have a bunch of greens, what do I do with it? So I whipped up a nice dish of cream of collard greens. Not bad for my first time ever cooking them. Have to say, I would have never went to the store to buy collard greens, but now I’m glad I know how to cook them. And once we finished eating them, it was fun to come up with other ways that we could think of to use the greens and how we would change the recipe.

Yesterday I baked the pumpkins to make puree for a pumpkin loaf I’m making at the kitchen this week. By the way, did you know you could freeze this puree and use it later? So even if I don’t get to the loaf this week, you can bet next week I will. And while I was at it, we whipped up some roasted pumpkin seeds. Just a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Β Enjoyed those while binge watching Stranger Things on Netflix. Better than any microwave popcorn I’ve had.

I’m almost through the bushel and running out of most things. I’m definitely feeling a little better about the process. When you see a bushel of food, and you look around and there are only two people you are cooking for, I started to feel a wee bit nervous about wasting the food.

Tonight I’m using the tomatoes in a pasta dish and later this week I will finish off the carrots by turning them into french fries. So all in all, I’d say it’s a successful first week of my farmhouse delivery. They really do make it convenient, affordable, and exciting for people to eat healthy, seasonal, local food.

This is the recipe for the apple cinnamon muffins that I used the apples in. I used a base recipe for muffins from King Arthur Flour and I just added some apples and cinnamon and put a crumble top on it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    Wow, that’s quite the bushel of food. I can’t believe they gave you two pumpkins! I don’t know what I’d do with them. These muffins sound great though, wish I had some right now.

    • serena October 30, 2017, 7:03 am

      I thought the same thing with the pumpkins. But once I baked them I got the equivalent of almost two full cans of puree. Now I just do anything I would normally do with a can of pumpkin.

      You could also store the mixture in the fridge for a week and make them daily instead of all at once. Put it in a ziplock and just bake a couple per day. Nothing says love like fresh baked muffins each morning πŸ™‚

      This is the first time I have made the puree. It took a bit of time, but well worth it. What I also loved was roasting the pumpkin seeds. A little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. So good!

      I know so many people that are done with the season already! I’m trying to limit myself to one episode a night, which is still more TV than I like in my life. And I’m justifying it as “it’s raining and cold outside, what else would I be doing” πŸ™‚

    I honestly don’t like muffins, but honey, this right here is making me want to make my own right away. I don’t like muffins really because they all seem so dry. I am going to actually try and do this. Will let you know if I came close to your perfection.

      I think all the apple helps quite a bit with the dryness. A lot of liquid going in the batter from all the juices.
