But the good news is we’ve been able to have our version of Apple Roses ready for you just in time for Thanksgiving!

So for those of you who haven’t seen the original:

  1. 1 apple, sliced
  2. 1/2 lime's juice
  3. 1 sheet of puff pastry
  4. 3 tsp ground flax
  5. 6 tsp St Dalfour Apricot Jam
  6. A sprinkle of cinnamon
  7. 1/4 cup of walnuts, chopped and divided into 6
  8. First cold pressed extra virgin oilve oil for greasing the pan
  1. Cut apples in half, take out the core and then slice thinly using a mandolin slicer. Place slices in water with lime's juice. Flour and roll out pastry. Sprinkle with flax and then cut into 6 strips.
  2. For each strip: Sprinkle with cinnamon, apricot jelly, nuts. Place apple slices on the top edge of the pastry (see video) and roll. Place each rose in a greased cup cake tin. Bake at 375 for 35-45 min.
  1. The redder the apple the redder your apple rose will be.
  2. Each hearty rose is about 250 kcal and loaded with omega 3 fats thanks to the added flax and nuts.
  3. And now you know what our secret weapon is for getting perfect petals every time – A MANDOLIN SLICER. I think Asma said it best when she said “this is the best kitchen appliance in the world”.

    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
