Honey Baked Apples
A nice change from the cinnamon and sugar seasoning traditionally used when baking apples. Serve as either a meal accompaniment, or as a comforting dessert paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
2 cups water
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup clover honey
6 large Rome Beauty or other baking apples
1 cup golden raisins
- In a saucepan, bring water, brown sugar and honey to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Core apples and peel the top third of each. Place in an ungreased 9-inch square baking pan.
- Fill apples with raisins; sprinkle any remaining raisins around apples. Pour syrup over apples.
- Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour or until tender, basting occasionally.
