Apples from mi madre. Don’t know what kind they are, but looked good for baking. Decided that since it is officially autumn, we could use some festive, warm apple inside us! This is a really (I mean really) simple thing to make – anyone could do it! Except maybe leave the cutting part to adults (och, that reminds me of an almost horrible kids-with-knife-babysitting-experience I had a looong time ago…shiver…).
Be careful with knives.
They’re sharp and pointy.
Ok I think we can continue…
Just take two apples – like these two little buddies below:
Chop off the top of them, removing the stem, and a little of the top of the apple. Then, CAREFULLY, use the knife (a small one) to core out the center of the apple. I like to do it with a knife so that I can retain the bottom of the apple as a base. I think you could use a corer – but don’t know how well you’ll be able to contain the goodies… Try it and see!
Next, fill the holes up with something yummy! I like walnuts and honey…so that’s what I use. Other ideas might be, raisins, brown sugar and butter. Berries, nuts and syrup. Cooked, chopped bacon and cheese to melt and brown over the top (yum!). Caramelized pork and onions. Even sautéed carrots, cabbage, sunflower seeds and raisins. Be creative!
