Curried Apple Hash

I admit it.  This did not call my name.  While, apples are marvelous, hash does not have enough oomph to its name.  When one thinks about it though, hash should be delicious. 


Oops, I guess it depends on which definition you use.


This is from Your Dictionary

  1. to chop (meat or vegetables) into small pieces for cooking
  2. INFORMAL to make a mess or botch of; bungle
Origin: Fr hacher, to chop, mince: see hachure
noun
  1. a chopped mixture of cooked meat and vegetables, usually baked or browned
  2. a mixture, as of things used before in different forms; rehash
  3. a hodgepodge; muddle; mess
I would prefer the chopped mixture to the muddle or mess.  Looking at it though, it does look messy.  The taste is far from messy and is a delight to taste.  This would make a good topping for salmon or chicken.  It would enhance rice or quinoa.

Curried Apple Hash Amy  Traverso, author of the Apple Lover's Cookbook (adapted)
Can you imagine a book filled with all kinds of apple recipes?  I want this book.  I am going to have to hint for someone to give it to me.  No way, can I spend any more money on cookbooks. 
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
4 large Granny Smith apples, peeler, cored and sliced into matchsticks
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1 tablespoon curry
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Method:
In large skillet over medium low heat, heat olive oil.  Add onion and cook until translucent. (5 minutes)
Increase heat to medium and add apples and cook another 5 minutes until soft.  
Stir in chives, curry powder, brown sugar, salt and pepper.  Reduce heat to low and cook for 8 additional minutes.
If you prefer it less sweet, omit brown sugar.
