Croatian & Vegan: Corba od Jabuka

Yay! My first Skype cooking adventure is over and it was a lot of fun. 🙂 Although the connection broke a few times we had so much to laugh about and the food was pretty delicious and very heart warming!

My first cooking guest via Skype was Mila from Croatia and this cooking session was the most spontaneous thing ever. We met via facebook like 5 minutes before we actually cooked! Mila asked sth. like: „Do you have apples at home, and cinnamon, and cloves? What about white wine?“ I said: „Yes, everything´s there!“ and she said: „Great, let´s cook!“

Actually Mila does live in France at the moment but she was born in Croatia. I loved her slightly French accent mixed with what I would think is a Croatian accent.

Mila teached me a dish she was teached by her Croatian grandmother. And as you know already – there are a lot of apples involved. It´s almost vegan by itself. You just have to try this!

Corba od Jabuka

  • about 9 green apples (they should be slightly sour)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon cloves
  • 1/4 l white wine (dry)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • optional: 1 tablespoon flour
  • optional: bread to make croutons
  • optional: grounded cinnamon for serving

Slice the apples. Cut out the core. Put them into a pot together with the lemon juice, cloves, cinnamon stick and water. Bring to a boil. Let cook until the apples are soft.
