So...Happy St. Patrick's Day a day late!
Several weeks ago I attended a cooking class taught by Chef Brad who's like the king of grains. During the class he showed us how to pressure cook a quick dinner using a variety of grains and pasta. I ended up buying a new Fagor electric pressure cooker and I'm loving it! I use it almost every day and my brain keeps thinking up new things to cook in it. It's definitely not my mother's pressure cooker! I was terrified of her pressure cooker and knew it would blow up someday. I'm not scared of this one at all! Yesterday I made chunky applesauce in four minutes. It was so fast! Too bad I didn't add some green to it to make it look more Irish.
6 apples, peeled, cored, and cut in chunks
1/4 cup sugar (more or less to taste)
1 cup water or apple juice
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pressure cook on high for 4 minutes.
