Ingredients

Topping

  • 3/4 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cups Walnuts (Finely Chopped)
  • 3/4 cups Old Fashion Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

Filling

  • 3lb Golden Delicious Apples (Peeled, Cored, Halved & Cut in 1/2" wedges)
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Red Apple Balsamic (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 2 tablespoons Butter Flavored Olive Oil (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 3/4 Apple Cider
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter

Directions

Topping
Step 1
Adjust oven rack to the middle position and heat to 450F. Combine flour, walnuts, oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl. Stir in butter until mixture is thoroughly moistened and crumbly. Set aside while preparing fruit filling.
Filling
Step 2
In a glass bowl whisk together 2 Tbs Butter Flavored Olive Oil and 1/4 Cup Red Apple Balsamic. Add apples and macerate 30 minutes. Remove apples and toss in granulated sugar and cinnamon, set aside. Bring 3/4 cup apple cider & 1/4 cup Red Apple Balsamic to a simmer in a medium sauce pan over medium heat; cook, stirring periodically until reduced to ~50%, (about 5-7 minutes). Note-stop reduction just prior to desired thickness and transfer into a glass bowl. Place glass bowl on-top of a larger bowl containing ice and stir until reduction has cooled. Reduction will continue to thicken as it cools. Transfer reduced cider to a bowl or liquid measuring cup, stir in lemon juice and set aside.
Step 3
Heat butter in empty skillet over medium heat. When foaming subsides, add apple mixture and cook, stirring frequently, until apples begin to soften and become translucent, 12 to 14 minutes. (Do not fully cook apples.) Add in cider/balsamic reduction and continue cooking for an additional 2 minutes stirring constantly to coat apples. Add apple/balsamic reduction into a 8” square baking pan.
Step 4
Sprinkle topping evenly over fruit, breaking up any large chunks. Bake until fruit is tender and topping is deep golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool on wire rack until warm, at least 15 minutes. Drizzle with Red Apple balsamic and serve with Vanilla ice-cream.

PINEAPPLE BALSAMIC GLAZED HAM

PINEAPPLE BALSAMIC GLAZED HAM

Cook time 15 minutes
Meal type Condiment, Dessert
Occasion Barbecue, Casual Party, Christmas, Easter
By author EVOO Mike

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Pineapple Barrel Aged White Balsamic (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 10lb Spiral Ham
  • 1lb Fresh Pineapple (Cored & Cubed)

Directions

Step 1
Place 1 cup Pineapple balsamic in a medium sized saute pan.
Step 2
Reduce over medium to medium-high heat for approximately 7-10 minutes with constant stirring. Note: balsamic will bubble and foam as it reduces. We recommend using overhead fan ventilation as the vinegar fumes can be strong. The goal of this step is to reduce the balsamic ~80% of the desired consistency. The remaining reduction will be done in the next step.
Step 3
Pour hot reduction sauce into a glass bowl and set on top of a larger bowl containing ice. Stir until balsamic cools. As balsamic cools it will reduce to a slightly thick syrup. This is a traditional balsamic glaze perfect for anything, even on top of ice-cream!
Step 4
Bake ham according to preparation instructions.
Step 5
During the last 20-30 minutes pull ham out of oven and glaze with Pineapple balsamic reduction. Place pineapple chunks around ham and return to oven for the remainder of baking time.

Note

Any left over Pineapple balsamic reduction can be served over ice-cream

By author EVOO Marketplace

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 quart Water
  • 5 tablespoons Kosher Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 6 Pork Loin Chops (8oz each)
  • 1/2 cup Organic Basil Infused Olive Oil (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 4 cloves Garlic (Minced)
  • 1 tablespoon Rosemary (Freshly Minced)
  • 1/2 cup Cinnamon/Pear Balsamic Vinegar (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Ultra Premium Extra Virgn Olive Oil (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 2 medium slices Vadalia Onions (Cut Into 8 Wedges)
  • 2 Large Pears (Cut Into 8 Wedges)
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt

Directions

Step 1
In a large bowl, stir together the water, kosher salt, and sugar. Add pork chops to this brine, and let them soak for no more than one hour. Discard brine and pat pork chops dry with paper towels.
Step 2
In a shallow dish, stir together the Organic Basil infused olive oil, garlic, and rosemary. Place pork chops in the dish, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 hours.
Step 3
Pour the Cinnamon-Pear balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook until reduced by 50%, about 7-10 minutes. Note: stop reduction just before desired thickness. Pour reduction in glass bowl and place on top of larger bowl containing ice. Stir continuously until reduction cools. When the vinegar cools, it should be the consistency of syrup.
Step 4
Melt butter with Ultra-Premium EVOO in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and pears, and quickly brown being careful to keep the wedges intact. Once the onions and pears are browned, reduce heat to low, and cook for about 7 minutes, or until tender. Stir in the reduced vinegar and salt. The recipe can be prepared up to this point several hours before grilling.
Step 5
Preheat the grill to high. Warm pears on a cool section of the grill (in the skillet), while placing the pork chops over the hot part. Cook pork for about 3-4 minutes per side, or to desired finish. Remove to a serving plate, cover with aluminum foil and let rest for a few minutes. Uncover, top with the pear onion sauce, and serve.
Step 6
Warm pears on a cool section of the grill (in the skillet), while placing the pork chops over the hot part. Cook pork for about 3 minutes per side, or to desired finish. Remove to a serving plate, cover with aluminum foil and let rest for a few minutes. Uncover, top with the pear onion sauce, and serve.
