The apple does not fall far from the tree – Oven-baked Apple Butter With Rosemary and Coriander
OVEN-BAKED APPLE BUTTER WITH ROSEMARY AND CORIANDER
light brown sugar
fresh rosemary, finely chopped
ground coriander seeds
runny honey or maple syrup
Remove the cores and divide the apples in two if they are small or in quarters if not. Put the apples in a buttered oven-proof form with the cut sides up.
Mix sugar with rosemary, ground coriander and enough honey or maple syrup to make a paste. It is difficult to give you an exact amount of sugar to use because it depends on how big the apples but I’d say that a normal size apple needs one tablespoon. At least.
Fill the apple halves with the sugar paste, top with small knobs of butter and then splash a good dose of wine over. Be generous because the wine and sugar will turn into a lovely toffee sauce.
Bake in a pre-heated oven (200°C/390°F) for 20-30 minutes or until the apples are golden and soft.
