- 6 my mature
- 120g of raw cane sugar
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
- 50g of pine nuts
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 large pomegranate
- 1 roll of puff pastry
- 120g of melted butter (or vegetable margarine)
- a sachet of powdered sugar
- 50/70 g of organic jam of fruit of your choice
Peel the apples and cut them into small cubes, shell the pomegranate and put the seeds in a container.
Melt the butter (leave at least 20g) in a saucepan over low heat and while the butter is still hot, dip the diced apples into it. Cook for about 1 minute and mix. With the fire out, pour the cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, pine nuts and pomegranate seeds, mixing everything very well.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Meanwhile, roll out the puff pastry. Once spread, on a cloth (but it is usually already rolled up in parchment paper), cover it with the help of a spoon with a thin layer of jam leaving a border of at least 2cm all around.
Now pour the mixture over it, mixing well. Roll up the puff pastry with its filling, taking care not to break it (with the help of a cloth or with the paper of the dough itself it will be easier).
Place the strudel on a greased baking sheet and pass over the melted butter (which you had previously left aside). Bake at 180 degrees for at least 40 minutes.
When cooked, sprinkle your strudel with icing sugar.
Cut the strudel into slices and serve garnished with some pomegranate seeds.
