Straight up, I jacked this recipe from Linny. Well, the base of it anyway. One time she chopped up apples and threw them in a pot with some instant chai mix we had lying around and cooked them down until they were soft and brilliant and obviously delicious. Fancy apple pie without having to make a crust? Yes, please!
Whoda thunk there was any way to make it taste better?
4-5 peeled, tart apples
One pint blueberries
Juice from one orange
1/2 cup sugar
2 TB instant chai mix
1-2 cups old fashioned oats
So you're about to experience a little bit of a "do as I say, not as I do" recipe in that the pictures to follow will definitely LOOK like they have unpeeled apples featured in them but... You're hallucinating. You should really get that checked out.
Chop up your tooooootally peeled apples and put them on the stove over medium heat with the orange juice, blueberries, and sugar. Once the blueberries start to pop and there's a little more room in the pot, add your chai mix!
Cook the whole thing down until the apples are soft and just barely holding their shit together. And definitely not at all covered in peels.
Add some oats to the pot to soak up some of the juice! Only like a tablespoon or so. Then put all them tasty fruits into a baking dish and top 'em with some more oats and a sprinkling of sugar. If you're feeling fancy, you can even toast the oats beforehand so they'll be extra delicious and...oaty.
Slam that thang into the oven at 340°F for about 45 minutes or until nice and bubbly.
Scoop it into bowls, top it with ice cream and whipped cream and shovel it down your gullet before it cools. Or heats up? Melts? Look guys, the technicalities aren't important as long as the end result is the same.
