Apple Sacks in Orange Sauce


I love crepes especially with fresh fruits.  I have posted many crepe recipes and I wanted to do something totally different in taste wise and display wise.  So I thought of making these crepes with cooked apples.  I added some crushed ginger to the apples to give some spiciness.  Initially I was a bit afraid since I wasn’t sure how the outcome would be.  But for my surprise, it came out quite good.

As seen in the picture, once you add the apples to the crepes and formed a sack, I used apple peel (skin) to tie these sacks instead of using a thread.  When peeling the apple skin, make sure to peel them into long tapes and then cut them into thin strings.
