Hey there people and Happy Wednesday to you! I hope the world is treating you kindly, wherever in the world you may be.
Today I want to share with you one of my using up too many apples recipes, and it's as easy as pie to do! It is part of my Meals and Menus series.
Who is this Meals and Menu series written for? You guys of course! I guess though, it might be especially useful for those of you trying to cook a varied menu on a tight budget, to students who perhaps aren't all that confident when it comes to cooking, or anyone who just likes to collect new ideas for their weekly menus.
Now, let's get started shall we?
1. Chop your apples in half and remove the cores.
2. Pour your lemon juice onto a plate and dip the inside of your apple halves into it. This will stop them from going brown.
3. In a bowl combine the sugar, ginger and raisins.
4. Mix in the butter with the back of your spoon to make a paste.
5. Spoon this mixture into the apple halves.
6. Put into your slow cooker on low with 2cm of water for between 1-3 hours. (If you don't have a slow cooker put them into an oven dish with water on about 100 degrees centigrade for about 40 mins).
7. Once you are ready to serve (your whole house should smell lovely and spicey at this point!) take them out into a bowl.
2 apples per person (this recipe is for two people, so multiply the following amounts accordingly if you are serving more people)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp ginger (or cinnamon)
2 tbsp raisins
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp lemon juice
8. Serve with custard or ice cream or any kind of cream you like! TA-DA!!
The last two pictures are a little dark (because we had them at night time - this is real life here people!) but look cosy - which is exactly how this dessert makes you feel on a chilly Autumn evening. Try it yourself!
Have a great day people!
