French Apple Tart

Total Time: 2hours 20mins
Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

For the pastry:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 1/2 cup ice water

For the apples:

  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) cold unsalted butter, small diced
  • 1/2 cup apricot jelly or warm sieved apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons Calvados, rum, or water

Directions:

For the pastry, place the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse for a few seconds to combine. Add the butter and pulse 10 to 12 times, until the butter is in small bits the size of peas. With the motor running, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse just until the dough starts to come together. Dump onto a floured board and knead quickly into a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Roll the dough slightly larger than 10 by 14-inches. Using a ruler and a small knife, trim the edges. Place the dough on the prepared sheet pan and refrigerate while you prepare the apples.

Peel the apples and cut them in half through the stem. Remove the stems and cores with a sharp knife and a melon baller. Slice the apples crosswise in 1/4-inch thick slices. Place overlapping slices of apples diagonally down the middle of the tart and continue making diagonal rows on both sides of the first row until the pastry is covered with apple slices. (I tend not to use the apple ends in order to make the arrangement beautiful.) Sprinkle with the full 1/2 cup of sugar and dot with the butter.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the pastry is browned and the edges of the apples start to brown. Rotate the pan once during cooking. If the pastry puffs up in one area, cut a little slit with a knife to let the air out. Don't worry! The apple juices will burn in the pan but the tart will be fine! When the tart's done, heat the apricot jelly together with the Calvados and brush the apples and the pastry completely with the jelly mixture. Loosen the tart with a metal spatula so it doesn't stick to the paper. Allow to cool and serve warm or at room temperature.


Courtesy Reminders

  • If you are the proud owner of an extended cab vehicle, please be mindful and refer from backing over sidewalks. This prevents our sidewalks from being accessible to all residents.
  • If you are out of town, do not disconnect or turn off your breakers in your apartment home. This can create electrical and moisture issues in your apartment home.
  • When using the trash compactor, make sure to close the door after each time you drop a trash bag down the trash shoot. This will help by compacting the trash effectively and prevent future jams!

Pet Reminder

We have been noticing a pet waste issue around our community. Please be reminded that we do fine $60 for anyone who is caught not picking up after their pet. We want everyone here at Ashton Pointe to enjoy their home. Let’s work together on keeping the community looking beautiful!


Trash Compactor

Please remember the recycling receptacle to the left of the trash compactor is for broken down CARDBOARD BOXES ONLY EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

Do not dispose of large bulky items in the compactor. Disposing of such items actually causes our compactor to either jam or burn the motor causing garbage back up that is very unsightly. 

You can dispose of them at our local waste/recycling convenience center located at 130 Castle Rock Road, open 7:30am-7pm closed on Wednesdays. This is less than a mile from the community. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

Beaufort County Animal Shelter Donations Needed

We continue to be open for donations to the Beaufort County Animal Shelter. You can help the homeless animals by donating: towels, blankets, dish towels, paper towels, cotton balls, blue Dawn dish soap, bleach, dog and cat crates, canned dog and cat food, and more!

Want to send them something? Add them to your Amazon order. Go here to see their wish list.

Maintenance Tip

As the weather cools down, many of you will be turning on your heat for the first time. To give the unit time to adjust to the change, please leave the unit “Off” for 5 minutes when switching from “Cool” to “Heat”.

Because the heating elements have been unused for several months, dust may have accumulated on the element. The first time you turn on the unit, the dust may heat up and cause smoke and a burning smell.

This is normal. If the smoke detector goes off, you may need to open the windows to allow the apartment to clear out. For normal use, however, please do not have the heating/air conditioning unit running while the windows are open, as this can cause additional wear and tear to the unit.

Welness Corner: How to stop a cold in its tracks!

  1. Prop yourself up with pillows. Keeping your head elevated at night helps your nasal passages stay open. So if you’re feeling a bit congested, grab a couple extra pillows and sleep so that you’re almost sitting up straight. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and able to breathe better.
  2. Take a hot shower. Whether you’re coughing or sneezing, the steam from a hot shower or humidifier will loosen up the congestion in your head and chest. Studies also show that very humid air can be toxic to viruses.
  3. Drink up. As you probably know by now, staying hydrated is a key to feeling better. If you’re already feeling sick, drinking lots of liquids will thin congestion and keep your throat moist. If you’re tired of plain old water, try hot tea, clear chicken or vegetable broth, or infused water for some added flavor.
  4. Get a good night’s sleep. It might seem obvious that getting enough sleep is important for staying healthy. But just how important is it? Studies show that people who get less than seven hours of sleep on average are three times more likely to get a cold than those who snooze for eight hours or more. (Yep, you read that right.) So if you feel a cold or flu coming on, make sure you’re getting plenty of shut-eye.
  5. Take a ‘mega dose’ of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is proven to shorten the duration of a cold or flu once it’s started. So if you feel a sickness coming on, pop an Emergen-C, airborne, or other mega-dose of Vitamin C.
  6. Gargle with salt water. If you have a sore throat, salt water will help ease the pain naturally. Not only does the salt help reduce inflammation in your throat, but the rinse also flushes out bacteria and viruses. Try adding a half a tablespoon of salt to 8 ounces of warm water.
  7. Eat immunity boosting foods. Eating these 10 foods on a regular basis will help prevent illness before it even starts. So if you’re set on staying healthy this cold and flu season, chow down on yogurt, garlic, chicken soup, mushrooms, and other immunity boosting ingredients.
