Fall Baked Apples
Core the apples…using firm apples such as Fuji, Gala
1/2-3/4 c. Nuts ( walnuts or pecans)
1/2 c. coconut
Diced ginger root (about 2″ long)
1/3-1/2 c. craisins
If you have a cereal like the KIND with flax seed, add about 1/2 c.
Cinnamon….do not be shy
Turbinado sugar (optional)…but mixed with the cinnamon, it is GOOD!
Add fresh VERMONT MAPLE SYRUP to make ingredients bind together.
Now, with the aid of a spoon and your fingers, pushed the ingredients into the center of the apples , and do so with apples in the baking dish.
Now add about 1/4″ of water to the bottom of the dish
Drizzle some additional maple syrup over the top of each apple, allowing it to overflow.
This gives you a little juice to spoon over the apples at the end of the cooking process.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 1hr 20min. Check on them. Just don’t let them turn to mush.
Served as is or with a little scoop of ice cream or a little cream ( whipped or plain)
You can experiment with other ingredients too. Try, but don’t be shy
