Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Apple

This simple and easy recipe contains the deliciousness of sprouts, apple and thyme tossed with olive oil and fresh apple cider!

  I topped it with a few pomegranate arils as well to add more colour.  Did you know they contain Vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants?

Leave those stray leaves on your baking tray.  They cook up quickly and you may have to remove them when you toss them halfway through but they add a great crunch to the dish.

I also added peeled garlic cloves to this but it seems I took this picture before I included them.  This is totally optional but it’s a wonderful addition for garlic addicts like myself.

This dish used the apples from the very first crop of apples from  Barrie Hill Farms.  They pressed their own apple cider right at the farm.  Can’t get any fresher than that!

I need one of these machines.   Hmmm, I guess I better get myself an apple orchard first.   You can see why I get so crazy excited about working with the farm!
