On Rosh HaShanah we traditionally eat apples and honey to symbolize our hope for sweetness in the upcoming new year. This Rosh HaShanah we wanted to share with you the recipe for our cook Nellie’s famous Apple Brown Betty to bring a sweet Coleman Shabbat tradition to the homes of all our Coleman families:
7 cups sliced apples- about 7 medium apples
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups brown sugar
3 cups flour (self-rising)
2 sticks margarine or butter
Peel core and slice apples in a mixing bowl. Mix sugar, apples, and cinnamon. Put into a 9×13 baking dish. Mix brown sugar, flour, and melted butter until crumbly, like a streusel topping. Put on top of apple mixture and bake at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes or until brown and apples are done.
So go ahead and bake some Apple Brown Betty with your family and send us a picture of you and your family with your Rosh HaShanah creation to us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’ll post pictures we receive on our Facebook page for all of our families to see.
Wishing all of you a sweet new year,
The Camp Coleman Year-round Staff
