Well, Idiot/Savant put in a request for a Tarte Tatin a few weeks back, and I thought I’d give it a go.

First try? Not so great.

The caramel hasn’t really worked. Ideally it would sit high on the apples and form a delicious layer.

Also, the apples are way too soggy. Will cook for a few minutes less next time, and use the crunchiest apples possible.

Finally, I used a cast-iron skillet for the cooking, but didn’t clean it properly. You can faintly taste garlic or something in the butter.

That said? Chef Du Plunge and I ate about a quarter of it before Second Chef got home!
