Apple & Cream Cheese Stuffed Whole Wheat Ravioli with Mint Pesto

by Chef Chris, Harvest Habersham

Whole Wheat Pasta Dough:

10 oz Sylvan Falls Mill whole wheat flour

6 oz. high gluten flour

12  local egg yolks

3 local whole eggs

1.5 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1 T local milk

1 T salt


2 local apples

2 T sugar

1/4 tsp nutmeg

2 oz. cream cheese, softened

Mint Pesto:

1 c. fresh, local mint

1 T local garlic, minced

1/4 c. olive oil

salt to taste

Egg Wash:

1 local whole egg mixed with 1 T water


For the pasta dough: In a large bowl, mix wheat flour and high gluten flour. In a separate bowl, crack 3 whole eggs. Add the 12 egg yolks, oil, milk, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mix. Pour liquid mix into well. Gently stir with fingertips, incorporating a little of the flour at a time into the liquid. When dough comes together, knead until smooth and not sticky.

For the filling: Peel, core, and dice apples into one centimeter cubes. Toss apples with sugar and nutmeg. Cook over low heat just enough to melt the sugar. Mix in the cream cheese.

For the pesto: Finely chop the fresh mint. Mince the garlic. Combine mint and garlic in a bowl, add olive oil, mix together. Add salt to taste.

Assembly: Roll the pasta dough out into a square 1/8″ thick. Cut dough into rectangles. Brush edges of pasta with egg wash. Place 1 T filling in the center of each rectangle. Fold pasta over once (edge to edge) to form a pillow. Crimp the edges with a fork.

Bring 6 quarts of salted water to a boil. Drop 6 ravioli in boiling water and cook until al dente, approx. 6 minutes. Strain ravioli in a colander. Plate the ravioli and spoon desired amount of pesto over the pasta. Serve immediately.

Hoe Cakes

Makes approx. 12 hoe cakes

Originally, Native Americans cooked these on hot rocks in an open fire. They were commonly referred to as Ash Cakes. Later on, settlers from Europe adopted the recipe, cooking the cakes on the blades of their hoes in the fireplace. This is where they get the name “Hoe Cakes”. Of all the recipes in my collection, this is one of the oldest, the cheapest, and just about the tastiest of all. Serve Hoe Cakes as bread, or by themselves for breakfast with maple syrup or molasses. They also make a nice accompaniment to main meals, especially when fried in margarine. In the summertime, when you want hot bread, but don’t want to heat up the oven, this is the best choice. They cook right on top of the stove, without heating up the entire house. Good for camping and backpacking too.


2 Cups Corn Meal

1 tsp Salt

2 Cups Boiling Water

1-2 Tbsp Honey (optional, to sweeten)

Oil for frying


Put the tea kettle on to boil. In a large bowl combine the corn meal and salt. When the water boils, measure it in a metal or tempered-glass measuring cup. Pour the boiling water over the corn meal and stir it up. The corn meal will swell up, absorbing the water, and making a very thick mash.

Heat some oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. You can use as little as two tablespoons of oil per pan full, but it is a little easier to use 4 or 5 tablespoons of oil for each pan full. Use your waistline and frying skill as the final judge. Now scoop up a little of the corn meal mush (about a 1/4-cup) and shape it into a patty. It will still be warm from the boiling water, so be careful not to burn yourself. You can let it cool down some more first if you like. Plop the patty into the hot fat, and get it to frying.  Make some more until you have the whole pan full.  I usually cook about 4 or 5 at a time. When the underside is crispy brown, turn them and cook the other side.  When both sides are crispy and brown, transfer them to a plate to keep warm, and start another batch.
