Apples Stuffed with Prunes
|Mcintosh apples||4 Large|
|Lemon juice||1 Teaspoon|
|Chopped prunes||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Ground walnuts||1 Tablespoon|
|Ground cinnamon||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Orange juice/Apple juice||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
Core the apples and remove about 1" of the peel from around the tops.
Rub the exposed surfaces with the lemon juice.
Prick the skins in several places with a fork to keep the apples from bursting.
In a small bowl, combine the prunes, almons, honey and cinnamon.
Divide the mixture among the apples, stuffing it into the cored areas.
Arrange the apples in a 3-quart casserole dish.
Add the orange or apple juice to the casserole.
Cover with vented plastic wrap.
Microwave on high for 4 minutes.
Give the dish a half turn and microwave on high for 3 minutes, or until the apples are tender and easily pierced with a sharp knife.
