Have you seen that fun apple roses tutorial doing the rounds? Well, this weekend I decided we NEEDED them. With custard. Have a look and tell me you don't want them, too...
For 6 apple roses, you will need:
1 sheet of JusRol ready-rolled puff pastry
2 sharp, red apples, such as Braeburns
Juice of half a lemon
A sprinkling of cinnamon
A nice jam - they used apricot but I used raspberry - watered down slightly
A dusting of icing sugar
The video is so clear I don't need to write the method, but here's a few words of advice from me...
* The video appears to use just one apple for six roses, however I needed 2 apples. This means I had to up the time to 6 minutes in the microwave in order for the slices to be soft enough to roll.
* Don't do what I did and try to get more than six slices out of the sheet of puff pastry! They are better wider, the apple just slips out if they're too narrow.
* Next time, I'll peel the apples. These were nice except for the skin sticking in the back of your throat and AJ didn't like the texture at all. If you're sprinkling with icing sugar I can't see it making much difference anyway!
* Enjoy warm with vegan custard or ice cream. Deeelish!
