    red apples, peeled

  • 6

    cloves

  • 1

    lemon

  • 1 tsp.
    (5 mL)

    nutmeg

  • 2

    cinnamon sticks

  • 1/2 cup
    (125 mL)

    Maple syrup

  • 1 1/4 cups
    (315 mL)

    sweet white wine

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Peel the apples and remove the core from the bottom using a knife or an apple corer.

Rub lemon on the apples to prevent darkening. Set aside.

Prick a clove into each apple and place the apples standing in an oven ready dish with the cinnamon sticks. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

In a small saucepan, slowly heat the white wine and the maple syrup for 5 minutes without boiling.

Pour the hot sauce on the apples until they are halfway submerged in sauce. Cover and poach in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for approximately 45 minutes or until the apples are nicely tender. Baste with sauce occasionally.

Remove the cloves and the cinnamon sticks before serving.

To serve, place an apple on a plate and drizzle with sauce.
