Apple Strudel

Many people think of Germany when they think of apple strudel, but when I think of Germany, I think back to the very long month I spent on my family’s (practically ancient) farm and the boredom that forced me to do my summer reading long before the first day of 8th grade.

I’m really not trying to sound ungrateful, but this was an OLD farm with questionable plumbing.

TMI WARNING

If you had to go #2, you had to go to the outhouse that was conveniently located in the cow barn that was conveniently attached to the house. And man, for a 13 y/o, it was scary, stinky, and disturbing to hear the echoing sounds of whatever release falling deep inside the ground and hitting with a “plop”. And then there was the horrifying realization that it was a shared facility, and deep inside, it wasn’t all just “yours”. Then there was the fear of what else might be down there that went unseen and unheard, and I had entertained the idea of a Gollum-esque Golgothan surviving on roaches because minds run wild at 3 am.

Plus the house was supposed to be haunted which kept me locked inside my bedroom deep inside the feather bed because ghosts are real. I’ve not had many experiences, or rather, I’ve not had any experiences I can definitively chalk up to supernatural activity but rather an overactive imagination implanted with campfire stories. I just know they’re real although logically I should blame all the ghosty reality shows I watch and all the horror movies I adore.

Back on topic (although I doubt there’s any hope of saving whatever appetite you might have – blame me, not the beverage)…

When I think of apple strudel, I think of home and Americana and delicious buttery topping. So far as I’m concerned, the apples are only there for flavor and garnish because I have priorities, yo. If I want to eat salad (i.e., fruit or vegetables), it’s going to be an appetizer or main course, not dessert. However, I still love apple strudel and all the wonderful flavors, so I made this to get all the bits I love into a single beverage.
