Ingredients

  • 8 granny smitth apples
  • 100g chopped dried cherries
  • 100g chopped dried figs
  • 50g chopped roasted almond slivers
  • 50g hopped toasted pecans
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • unsalted butter
  • 250ml apple cider
  • 3 generous tbsp maple syrup
  • cream, yoghurt or ice-cream

Method

In a bowl, mix together 100g each chopped dried cherries and chopped dried figs; 50g each chopped roasted almond slivers and chopped toasted pecans; 1/3 cup of brown sugar. Take the core from 8 granny smith apples, leaving them unpeeled, and stuff each cavity with the mixture. Place the apples in a baking pan and put a generous teaspoon of unsalted butter on top of each. Preheat the oven to 180C. Pour 250mL of apple cider and 3 generous tbsp of maple syrup into the bottom of the baking dish and place in the oven for 45-50 minutes, basting every 5 minutes. When tender, place the apples on a serving dish and cover to keep them warm. Take the remaining liquid and place in a saucepan, boiling until reduced to a syrup.

Serve the apples with the syrup, accompanied by cream, yoghurt or ice-cream.
