At the end of last year, I had the exciting opportunity to host a Tryazon party for Truly Grass Fed, an Irish grass-fed dairy company. (You can read my original post here.) I was selected once again to host another party last weekend, which excited the kitchen witch in me! This time around, Truly Grass Fed mailed a host box containing star-shaped cookie cutters and cloth shopping bags for guests and an insulated mug for the host to keep. In addition, the host receives coupons for free Truly Grass Fed butter and cheese, and $1 off coupons to hand out to guests.
Now the fun begins! I enjoy coming up with my own recipes. Being that I some apples and strawberries that were about to go bad, I decided to create a buttery-cinnamon strawberry apple casserole. This is delicious by itself as a dessert, used as an ice cream topping, or mix with yogurt.
4 large apples, chopped
6 medium to large strawberries, chopped
1/3 cup chopped medjool dates
4 Tbsp Truly Grass Fed butter
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/4 cup brown coconut sugar sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
In a large cast iron pan, melt 2 tbsp butter on medium.
Add chopped apples and dates, stir to coatwith butter.
Add cinnamon, salt, and sugar and stir to cover apple chunks evenly. Add water.
Cook on medium for about 10-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until soft.
Remove pan from heat, and transfer the mixture into a casserole dish. Scoop the remainder of butter over the mixture. Add strawberries and mix.
Sprinkle with more sugar if desired. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Serve hot or cold.
