Homemade spice blends

Hello everyone! My name is Sawsan and my little space on the web is chef in disguise. I have been a member of the daring kitchen since March 2011 and it has been a true pleasure to belong to this wonderful group of creative people.
For this challenge, I chose to dare you to make your own herb and spice blends from scratch.

Tarte Tatin

Daring Bakers
March 2015

Hi, I’m Korena from Korena in the Kitchen and this month I’m exciting to be bringing you the tarte Tatin! This classic French dessert is basically the apple pie version of an upside-down cake: apples are caramelized in sugar in a saucepan, covered with pastry and baked, and then inverted on a plate to serve. It’s a great example of the magic of caramelized sugar: the apples take on a deep, rich mahogany colour and become infused with the complex flavours of a well-cooked caramel, and the crisp puff pastry base also becomes practically candied with caramel at the edges, resulting in a fantastic mix of soft, crunchy, and chewy textures.
