P&Q: Baked Apples Filled with Fruit and Nuts

Whoops, I am sorry, Doristas, I got a week ahead of myself. I was so excited after hearing that Andrea was on-the-mend that I lost my head!  We’re doing apples this week. Any problems, concerns, tips, questions, just ask. We’ll deal with the soups next week unless Betsy and Laurie fire me for being incompetent.

    Truly wonderful news about Andrea.

    Made the apples tonight. I was concerned about breaking through the bottom while coring, so after I did the initial cutting I hollowed out the apple with a melon baller. It worked really well.

    I made the apples and didn’t peel them halfway down so didn’t cut around the “belly” of the apple so mine split in the oven. It’s ok, they look rustic ;)

    Also, I misread the recipe (jetlag?) and used apple cider vinegar instead of apple cider (!!!!) so the house didn’t smell so good but since I had added more honey they tasted ok (we’ll see if they are ok tomorrow too).

    That’s a great idea Diane re: the melon baller!

      I did the same thing – used vinegar instead ! I can’t believe how complicated (and messed up) I made such a simple recipe :) Perhaps the vinegar had something to do with the “meh” reception mine got.

    We had these last night – the slit around the middle seemed to stop them from splitting. They didn’t burst, but they were still rustic because I am a lazy peeler…

    Served the apples with a dollop of agave sweetened ricotta. Ricotta and warm apples go well together :-)
