Apples and Oranges: A Dutch Oven Challenge

“You can’t compare apples to oranges!”  So the saying goes.

Well, in this dutch oven challenge, we won’t compare.  Instead, we will combine.

I got to thinking about these two fruits, and how much I love the luscious flavors of each one.  I started thinking how much I love to combine savory meats and sweet flavors together onto the same dish.  So, here’s the challenge, open to any dutch oven chef:

Prepare a dish using the following ingredients:

  • Apples (in any form)
  • Oranges (in any form)
  • Any meat (some kind of meat must be included)
  • Mint (in any form)
  • Other ingredients, spices, and seasonings as you see fit.

The dish should be as original as possible.  Go to the ‘net for ideas, if you wish, but try and make it your own.

When completed, publish your finished dish (preferably with pictures) here in the IDOS forums, or at your own blog or website.  Then come back here and put in a comment with a link!

Let’s see what we can come up with!

  1. I got your challenge. Today I got my ingredients and will get it done in a day or two. Sounds like fun. Hope you get good response to it.

  2. Great! I can't wait to see what you (and others) are able to pull out of this one! I'm still planning my own entry as well. Keep us posted!

  3. Your challenge got me thinking and then the thinking turned to cooking and this is what I came up with.

    Thank you for the challenge. I enjoyed coming up with the recipe and my family enjoyed eating it.
