I peeled and chopped a good size Granny Smith apple, thinking that it would stand up nicely to cooking.
I cooked the risotto rice as I would normally, when it was almost done, I added the apples back to the pot, added 3 tablespoons of butter, and the remaining 2 ounces of the apple juice.
I topped it with some toasted almond slivers. If figs were in season, I would have added them, but as is stands right now the fig tree does not even have a glimmer of green, not one teeny tiny speck.
Thanks for a great day.....
