Ingredients

  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 baking apples (such as Golden Delicious or Idared)
  • 1/2 cup mixed chopped dried fruit (such as apricots, figs, prunes and/or whole raisins)

Method

In small saucepan, bring cider, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to boil; stir in butter. Set aside.

Core apples almost to bottom, leaving base intact. Pare off 3/4-inch (2 cm) wide strip around core at top; trim base to level, if necessary. Stuff dried fruit into each apple cavity. Place in 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish; pour cider mixture over top.

Cover and bake in 375°F (190°C) oven, basting twice, until tender, about 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until sauce is syrupy, about 20 minutes.
