Ingredients

  • 4 medium baking apples, such as Granny Smith
  • 6 Tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 4 Tablespoons walnuts, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons crystallized ginger, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons margarine
  • 4 Tablespoons honey

Directions

Spray the bottom of a slow-cooker with cooking spray.

Cut a cone-shaped piece around the stem at the top of each apple, about 2 inches wide, and remove it. Use a melon baller to remove the core and seeds, leaving the bottom and about ½ an inch of the sides of the apple intact.

In a medium bowl, combine cranberries, walnuts, ginger, brown sugar, and margarine. Mix together well. Divide the filling between the apples, pressing down to fill them completely. Bake in the slow-cooker set on high for 3 hours.

Serve drizzled with honey.

Walnut Shopping Tip

Whenever possible, purchase whole, not presliced or chopped nuts. They have a longer shelf life.

Walnut Cooking Tip

Toasting your nuts helps release essential oils and intensifies their flavor.
