When I was interning early last year, Chef J.J gave everyone an Amuse Bouche. For those who don't know what that is, It's a small bite of food, 3 bites maximum. Just to get you started. And he made these amazing Merlot braised Pears. So, I had too ask him what other fruits he braised. And he told me that Cola & Apples is a good combination. So I went home too try it for myself, But I used Cherry Cola and They were amazing! I must have forgot about them, Because they were in the back of my recipe box. So I share this delicious, fruity recipe with you. I hope you enjoy my Cherry Cola Apples!
