Ingredients

  • 4 apples
  • 2 Cups cider
  • 2 Teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup raisins
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
  • Whipped cream, for garnish
  • Nuts, for garnish

Directions

Cut the top off the apples and hollow out the center. Place the apple cider, honey, and vanilla bean in a saucepot and bring to a boil. Steam the apples until soft, about 10 minutes. Remove the apples and place on a plate for serving.

Boil down the apple cider, about 2 minutes, and then add the brown sugar and raisins. Cook until thickened, about 2 more minutes. Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the center of the apple and drizzle with the apple cider sauce. Finish with whipped cream and nuts.
 

Fruit Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Fruit Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
