Grandma Gladys used to make a mean baked apple. She probably used about as much sugar as she did apple though! Grandma táami has given us this recipe to share with you. It uses decidedly less sugar – none. This recipe makes 4 servings.
- 1 táami berry
- 4 Large good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, or Jonagold
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- ¼ cup Chopped pecans
- ¼ cup Currants or chopped raisins
- 1 Tbsp Butter
- ¾ cup Boiling water
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2 inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to cut out first the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about 3/4-inch to an inch wide.
- In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture. Top with a dot of butter (1/4 of the Tbps).
- Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.
- Serve warm with vanilla icecream on the side.
