    Baked Apples

    Baking an apple is an exercise in patience (for me), given the long baking time. But it’s so worth the wait. 

    Baked Apples

    My grandmother served baked apples for dessert when I was young. Nothing fancy. From my memory it was baked until it was completely soft.

    Since I don’t know how she prepared it, I’ve experimented over the past few years, when I’ve had a craving for one. This recipe is a result of my experiments.

    I like my baked apple completely soft, almost applesauce consistency, so I bake it for a full hour. If you want it a bit firmer, take it out of the oven after about 45 minutes of baking.

    And read the headnotes for all my tips and subs.

    Happy New Year!

      When you’re in a hurry bake the apples in the microwave about 8-10 minutes for 2. I like Jonathan apples best when I can get them with butter and brown sugar.
      You can also make applesauce this way by adding water (1/2 cup for 8 apples). Microwave on high for 10-12 minutes. After cooking, add 1 c. sugar if desired, stir and let sit until sugar dissolves about 2-3 minutes. If cooked long enough, the apples can be easily mashed up with a spoon. Voila for excellent applesauce!
