Culinary Program Given At Lone Oak FCE

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 - by Ruth Robinson

A culinary program of part lecture and part demonstration was featured at the monthly meeting of the Lone Oak Family and Community Education Club held at the Lone Oak Community Center on Monday. 

Aneta Dodd Eicher, UT Extension agent in Sequatchie County, combined the fall bounty of apples and sweet potatoes to concoct a tasty casserole and then presented the cooked dish to the class for their enjoyment.

While assembling sliced baked sweet potatoes and sliced peeled apples, she conducted a quiz about the many varieties of apples available and their uses, whether for eating, cooking, applesauce or salads. Many of the 20 names included lesser known varieties such as Macoun (sweet for eating and sauces), Mutsu (sweet, spicy, for eating, salads, sauces and baking) and a tart Paula Red (for eating and sauces).

The recipe combines three medium apples, peeled and sliced, three medium sweet potatoes baked and sliced and a mixture of 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon nutmeg, mixed together and sprinkled over the apples/sweet potatoes and then 1/4 cup of orange juice sprinkled over the top. Microwave on high for six minutes.

The next Lone Oak FCE Club meeting will be the fourth Monday of October.
