Apple Tart Tartin

We have created a simple and delicious Apple Tart Tatin recipe for you to try at home. Our favorite way to serve the tart is with a small wedge of Bellwether Farms Carmody and a drizzle of Salted Caramel. The Salted Caramel is made with Fleur de Sel: add just a little sprinkle of this pretty salt around the edges of the caramel and you will have created a beautifully finished plate.

Health Notes by Dr. Liz

Transitioning away from trans-fats

It’s the latest craze in health, so there is little doubt you’ve heard about the evils of trans-fats. These fats are formed when food manufactures partially hydrogenate liquid oils, such as corn oil, into a soft, solid fat – which is great for the taste and texture of baked goods like cookies, cakes, chips, and crackers, but not so good for your heart health.

Trans trouble:

  • Studies show that diets rich in trans-fats from foods such as margarine and baked goods correlate with a greater risk for heart disease.
  • Using margarine instead of olive oil or other vegetable oils in cooking can cause circulating cholesterol levels to rise, boosting your risk for vascular disease.
  • Trans-fat-rich diets also lower the good cholesterol HDL (more bad news for your heart health).
  • New scientific studies also show that trans-fats are linked to obesity.

Avoiding trans fats:

  • The American Heart Association recommends less than 2 grams of trans-fats daily. Check the Nutrition Facts on food labels for trans-fat content per serving and aim for zero (“trans-fat free” means the food contains less than 0.5 grams per serving).
  • Look at the ingredient list on food labels and avoid foods made with partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated vegetable oils.
  • When purchasing baked goods, select those made with trans-fat-free oils.
