A very simple appetizer or dessert. Makes 8 servings, though as an appetizer, you can cut the apples into four pieces and get 32 servings out of it.
The recipe doesn’t call for the apples to be peeled, but I peeled them anyway (other similar baked apple dishes on the net called for the apples to be peeled). It helps the flavors to absorb into the apple nicely. I suspect it’s tasty either way.
- 8 apples, cored
- Cherry or strawberry jam
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp mace or nutmeg
- 1 cup red wine
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Place apples in a greased casserole or baking dish (Earth Balance or a little oil will work). Fill each apple with jam.
Blend sugar and mace (or nutmeg) and stir in wine and vanilla. Pour over apples. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours before serving.
