Cider Poached Apples with Cinnamon Yogurt and Caramel Sauce Drizzle is a favorite breakfast fruit dish of customers at our Falmouth Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast and we are happy to share the recipe with you. Each breakfast at the Captain’s Manor Inn starts with a fruit dish and scone or muffin before we move onto the main entree of the morning. A fresh fruit cup is always a great way to start and yet as the fresh fruit is less abundant in the spring and late fall/winter this is a great fruit alternative. The recipe below can be modified for a smaller or a larger group based on your needs.

We are providing the ingredients and preparation necessary to Serve 8 guests.

Ingredients

ยฝ Gallon Apple Cider
ยฝ bottle Apple Juice
2 cinnamon sticks
4 Apples (peeled, halved, and cored)
ยฝ cup vanilla yogurt
ยฝ teaspoon ground cinnamon
ยฝ cup chopped pecans, candied
ยฝ cup caramel sauce

1. Bring apple cider, apple juice and cinnamon stick mixture to a boil over high heat. Let boil, uncovered about 25 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by about 1/3.
2. Add Apples, cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until desired tenderness. Remove from heat and let cool. Refrigerate the apples in the cooking liquid overnight.
3. Take your ยฝ cup of chopped pecans and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little sugar then toast in a preheated oven at 350 F for 8 to 10 minutes. Use immediately or store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
4. Combine yogurt and ground cinnamon in a small bowl. Pour into a cake decorating bag or a squeeze bottle and then drizzle yogurt on each serving plate. Next place a poached half apple on top of the yogurt sauce. Drizzle more yogurt over the top of the apple and drizzle some caramel sauce then sprinkle with toasted pecans.

We hope you enjoy from all the staff at The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth, Cape Cod.

Trick or Treat in Falmouth Village was celebrated in grand fashion with the 17th annual Trick or Treat stroll along Main Street on Saturday October 25th. Hundreds of youngsters and their parents came dressed for the occasions in costumes ranging from policemen and fireman to goblins, witches and beloved characters like Elsa of Frozen. We had parents dressed as superheros and sports figures as they escorted their little ones along the street. Restaurants and Retail shops alike offered up goodies to the trick or treaters.

Patches the firedog and Olivia as red riding hood led the parade down Main Street in Falmouth Village.

Falmouth Historic Walk

August 28, 2014 by Trish Robinson

A Falmouth historic walk is enhanced this year with the beautiful ceramic birdhouses created by Falmouth High School students in collaboration with the Falmouth Museums on the Green.Falmouth High School Ceramic Birdhouses at Highfield Hall This is a self guided tour through historic Falmouth Village and 28 different homes have these unique birdhouses located in trees in their front yards. Each of the birdhouses was painstakingly created and inspired by architectural, cultural or historic significance of the particular house they selected.

The Captain’s Manor Inn is proud to be a part of this endeavor. We are listed as number 12 on the tour and are under the name of Mostly Hall. The Inn was dubbed Mostly Hall back in the 1800’s when a young man visiting the home with his mother said “look ma, it’s mostly hall” upon stepping into the grande entrance. The name became part of town lore and the house is actually on the National Historic Registry under the name of Mostly Hall.

We share some pictures below and a video of students who made a birdhouse: http://youtu.be/BoNLHNVH2OM
