couche couche and apple confit

Couche Couche and Apple Confit

Apple confit:

Peel and slice a bunch of apples up thin. Lay in a baking dish, sprinkle with rum and sugar, place a star anise on top, and cover with foil.

Slow-cook in the oven overnight at 200 degrees, for 10-12 hours.

Uncover and continue cooking at 300 until the liquid has reduced some, if necessary. Probably an hour or two, depends on the apples.

Couche Couche, 2 servings:

Mix together
1/2 cup cornmeal
pinch baking powder
pinch salt
just under 1/2 cup water

Heat oil or butter in a hot pan, add the cornmeal mixture, and let a crust form on the bottom. Break it up and cook for 20 minutes on medium to medium low, stirring occasionally.

This is a basic hot cereal, like oatmeal, so you want to use good cornmeal from a mill, not the supermarket stuff, or you won't taste anything.
