Baked Apples

Baked Apples
(modified from using stevia as a natural alternative for sugar)


* 4 large good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, or Jonagold

Baked Apple Dish

* STEVIA -6 packets OR 1/2 tsp liquid
(conversions for 1/4 cup sugar. see conversion table & more stevia info @
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/4 cup chopped pecans
* 1/4 cup currants or chopped raisins
* 1 Tbsp butter
* 3/4 cup boiling water

1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2 inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to cut out first the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about 3/4-inch to an inch wide.

2 In a small bowl, combine the stevia, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with mixture. Top with a dot of butter (~1/4 of the Tbps).

3 Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.

Serve warm.
