When winter rolls around at Local Roots NYC, I'm often asked what am I supposed to do with all these apples? My answer is always roast them with potatoes! Like most sweet and savory pairings, they go hand in hand. (It's no coincidence that the German word for potato, erdapfel, means "earth apple.")
Inspired by seasonality, flavor, and linguistic circumstance, this recipe comes to you from my kitchen. I encourage you to add a turnip or two if you've got them lying around (unfortunately edited out for lack of popularity).
Apple Butter Recipe
The next recipe is for apple butter, another winter favorite. This recipe is really two recipes in one: if you stop early, you've got apple sauce, and if you keep going and you'll have apple butter.

The Valkeryie dinner was a supper club that I assisted with at Local Roots NYC. Our guest chef, Kai, came to us fresh out of Blue Hill at Stone Barns. He curated a fusion of Scandanavian and Japanese cooking traditions and flavor profiles using locally grown produce from the CSA.
My design for our invitation and menu is inspired by our young chef's vision; Nordic quilt motifs, ramen noodles, seafood and lotuses hug the border.
