VARIATIONS ON HONEY ROASTED APPLES AND POTATOES
- Root Veggies: Other root vegetables like turnips, parsnips, or rutabagas would taste delicious. You can also swap in sweet potatoes. Test your swap after 30 minutes of baking so you don’t overcook.
- Apples: Use other baking apples like Granny Smith apples, Gala apples, Honeycrisp apples, or Jonagold apples. Avoid using softer apples like Red Delicious.
- Spices: You can substitute Pumpkin Pie Spice for the spices in this recipe or add spices like cloves, cardamom, or nutmeg.
- Bourbon: If you don’t want to cook with bourbon, substitute 1 tablespoon vanilla mixed with ¼ cup sparkling apple cider. You can use other sparkling juices like cranberry or grape too.
- Maple Syrup: Try maple syrup or corn syrup instead of the honey. If you use dark corn syrup, reduce the brown sugar to ⅓ cup.
- Nuts: Instead of chopped pecans, you can use toasted almonds, walnuts, or hazelnuts as your crunchy topping. You could also use granola clusters.
