Seared Foie Gras with Caramelized Apples

4 (3-ounce) slices of Grade A foie gras, cleaned
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup flour
1 cup small diced green apples, unpeeled
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup Calvados
4 toast points (3 by 2 by 1/4)

Heat a sauté pan, over medium heat. Season both sides of the foie gras with salt and pepper. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Dredge the foie gras in the flour, coating completely. Sear the foie gras for 1 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. Add the apples and sugar to the foie fat. Sauté for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and add the Calvados. Place back on the heat and flame the liquor. Shake the pan back and fourth several times until the flame dies out. To assemble, place the croutons in the center of each plate. Place a piece of foie gras on top of each crouton. Spoon the apple sauce over the foie gras and serve.
