Poached Apples





I recently poached these apples for a gluten and grain free Apple Flognarde dessert for my other blogbut in my opinion, poached apples alone are worthy enough of their own write up.. so versatile, Wether eaten alone, or sliced up for a galette, poached apples are so easy, and really make for an elegant accompaniment to dessert recipes!


Poached Apples Ingredients
8-10 "mini" apples
1 cup Marsala or Brandy
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup sugar
5-6 crushed allspice
5-6 cardamom pods crushed

Poached Apple Directions
1. Prepare apples by peeling them, but leaving the stem intact. Core the inside of the apple carefully from the bottom.

2. Add wine, water, sugar and spices to pot. Let liquid come to a boil, turn heat down to medium, cook till sugar is dissolved. Lower heat, carefully add apples, cook on low till apples are fork tender. *Keep an eye on the pot, as the liquid evaporates quickly if heat is too high. When apples are done, remove from liquid and set aside.
