Beet-and-Apple Salad

4 large beets (2 1/2 pounds)
5 thyme sprigs
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup apple-cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1/3 cup salted pistachios, chopped
1 green apple, thinly sliced

  Preheat the oven to 375°. In a baking dish, lightly drizzle the beets and thyme with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and roast until the beets are tender, about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Let cool, then peel the beets and cut them into 3/4-inch dice.

In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard. Whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup of oil until emulsified. Add the horseradish and season with salt and pepper; toss with the beets and pistachios. Transfer the beets to a platter, top with the apple and serve.

Apple and Pear Ham Quesadillas

1 Honeycrisp Apple

  Core and thinly slice the apple and ear. Place 1 tortilla in a large 12 in skillet or on a griddle. Sprinkle ¼ cup cheese across tortilla. Place half of the apple and pear slices over the cheese in a circular fashion, alternating them to cover the tortilla evenly.

Sprinkle half of the diced ham then add another ¼ cup of cheese.

Top with a second tortilla. Cook over medium low heat for 2 – 3 minutes per side or until cheese is thoroughly melted.
