Ingredients for 2 people

  • 1 handful of walnuts (shelled)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp ginger powder
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 apples, cut into thick wedges
  • ½ cup fresh feta cheese curd (if not available, substitute with ricotta)

Silicone foil (for the caramel) - a silicone mold will do.

  1. Toast the walnuts in a dry pan until they just take color, remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Then prepare the caramel. Heat a pan very high. Add the sugar, spices and lime juice. Do not stir, but wait until the sugar begins to melt. Then swirl the pan until all the sugar has melted and turned a golden color.
  3. Remove from heat and pour onto a clean silicone mat (note: keep hands and fingers away from the hot caramel). Let cool completely and then break into shards.
  4. In the same pan, melt the butter, add the apple slices and let them caramelize.
  5. Serve with the walnuts, cheese curds, spiced caramel and edible wildflowers.
