Honey Apple Cinnamon Snack Posted by on Oct 22, 2014 in Arabic Language, Culture

Marhaba! The beautiful Fall season is in full swing! I hope you had the chance to witness some of nature’s changing beauty. Today, I am going to share a very easy Fall recipe that my wife and I use every. Although you can prepare this anytime of the year, I just feel that it tastes better during the fall season largely due to the fact that apples are crispier, juicier, and tastier. You might find many variations of this recipe in the Arab world and beyond, but my wife and I prepare it exactly this way. We call it ‘Honey Apple Cinnamon Snack.’ Please note that I have translated the entire recipe to Arabic! I am sure this helps with your learning, especially in such a fun and easy way!

  • 3 apples- any red apples should be fine, as long as they’re ripe
  • 4 tablespoons of cinnamon powder (you could use more or less depending on your love for cinnamon)

It’s more of an afternoon snack with a cup of coffee, tea, or a glass of apple cider! If you’re really craving something sweet, you can add some whipped cream. This makes it a savory sweet and sour afternoon snack! Give it a shot, you won’t regret it!

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
