Baked apples and mincemeat

Here’s a lovely, simple recipeĀ  from the Gabriel House Kitchen that’s perfect for those cold winter days:

You can alter the filling to suit the season. Nowadays roast or baked apples are often stuffed with various mixtures, which may include dried fruit, lemon rind, nuts or spices. While this is nice occasionally, my favorite is the following recipe from granny Maher:

4 Bramley Apples
1/2 cup prepared mincemeat
2 tablespoons butter
1 cupĀ  cider (Bulmers is especially good)

Preheat the oven to 190 C
1. Core the apples
2. Peel one-quarter inch of apple skin from the upper half of each apple to prevent splitting
3. Place each apple upright in an 8-inch baking dish
4. Fill the apple cavities with mincemeat and dot with butter
5. Pour the apple cider around the apples and bake, basting with the pan juices several times during the cooking, until the apples are tender – about 30 to 40 minutes.
