baked apple with pumpkin seeds

Ingredients

Roma apples

1 cup red wine (dry)

3 cups sangria wine

1½ cups dried cranberries

¼ cup currents

1 cup sugar

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1 cup honey

2 tbsp. orange zest

1 cup pumpkin seeds

 

Directions

1. Core the apple to remove the seeds. Score with the tip of a small knife in the middle of the apple and around it – this will help bake the apple evenly.

2. Peel the skin an inch around the top of the apple.

3. Meanwhile, put the red wine and sangria wine in a sauté pan. Reduce by half, then remove from the heat and set aside.

4. In a roasting pan, place the peeled apples (inside side up). In the center of each apple, add sugar. Then pour cinnamon powder around each apple.

5. In an oven pre-heated to 300 degrees, bake the apples for 15 minutes.

6. Meanwhile, in a medium-size bowl, toss together the cranberries, currents, honey, pumpkin seeds, and orange zest (this will act as a topping for the apples).

7. Remove apples from the oven and top each with ¼ cup of the honey mixture.

8. Put baking pan with apples back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve either hot or cold.
