E. Marie via Prevention

Serves 4

Another great apple recipe, and this one came from Prevention Magazine - so you know it's healthy for you.

  • 2 large baking apples, halved lengthwise and cored
  • 4 T. trans-free margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 C. orange juice
  • 1 T. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 C. evaporated milk
  • 2 T. pure maple syrup

Chill small mixing bowl. Place apples flesh side up in 4-quart or larger slow cooker & dot with margarine. Pour orange juice & vinegar over top.

Cover. Cook on low 2 to 3 hours, or until apples are soft but still hold their shape. Remove apples to plate and pour juice from cooker into small saucepan. Bring to a boil & reduce 3 to 4 minutes, until liquid is thick & syrupy. Set aside.

Whip milk & maple syrup in chilled bowl with electric mixer at high speed, 3 to 5 minutes, until mixture thickens. Top each apple with 1 1/2 tablespoons maple cream & drizzle with 1 tablespoon reserved fruit syrup.
