Check out this article from Perry's Plate blog. Pretty interesting. The article also has an article on making your own homemade yogurt. Actually, it's a link to a blog called A Year of Slow Cooking- yes- yogurt made in a slow cooker!

Apple Bacon Cheddar Dutch Baby 

By TaylorServes 4-6
1 apple, peeled, cored and sliced very thin
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, 3 of which are melted
3/4 cup bread flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup whole milk, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
5 large eggs, room temperature
8 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
1 cup extra sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
powdered sugar, for garnish
Turn oven on to 375°F. Place 10-inch cast iron skillet in oven and let pan heat while you prepare the batter (5 minutes or so). Toss apple slices in lemon juice.
In a blender or food processor, add the 3 tablespoons of melted butter, flour, cornmeal, milk, salt, and eggs. Mix for 30-45 seconds until a smooth batter has formed. Transfer from blender or food processor to a large bowl. Add bacon and cheese and stir.
Remove skillet from oven and add the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter, and let melt. Arrange apple slices in a single layer in skillet. Pour batter over top.
Bake in oven until puffy and golden, about 25 minutes. Top with powdered sugar before serving.

 I have a few recipes here that I've been working on for some upcoming events:
Upside Down Pineapple Muffins; Apple Fennel Sauerkraut. In this recipe, it suggested that the fennel is cut lengthwise. I did both. Just to see what it was like. But, it didn't photograph well.
Upside down Pineapple Muffins, here they are!
