Let�s face it: We could all use a little more fruits and veggies in our diets. But there�s just something in our DNA that leads our brains to choose the fatty and filling over the clean and crisp. The good folks over at The Crow�s Nest are proving that bringing produce into the kitchen can be as easy as infusing the flavors of the season into one of life�s guiltiest pleasures. Here, fall apples are simmered in sugar and fresh herbs until soft and spreadable. Two slices of bread, a whole lotta cheese, a wee bit o� honey and a hot pan later, and you�ve got a grilled cheese that�s salty, sweet and a helluva way to welcome cooler temperatures.
? First, make the apple-rosemary compote: Combine the apples, sugar, rosemary and water in a medium saucepan and stir to combine. Set over medium heat, stirring frequently until the apples begin to fall apart. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, or until the compote reaches a soft, chunky consistency.
? Once the compote is ready, assemble the sandwich: Place both cheeses on 1 slice of bread and smear the compote on the other slice. Drizzle honey over the compote.
? Combine the slices so that the cheese- and compote-covered sides are facing one another.
? Place the sandwich in a dry skillet over medium heat. Once the underside is nicely browned, flip and grill the other side until it is browned and the cheese has melted.
? Serve immediately.
