4 large Golden Delicious apples
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins
1/8 cup coconut, optional
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
4 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup apple juice or apple cider
How Honey Is Created
Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.
Wash and core apples leaving 1/2 inch of the bottom of the apple. Set into a 2-quart casserole dish.
Place all of the filling ingredients in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Spoon the filling into the cored apples. Top each with 1 tablespoon of honey.
In a small pan heat butter and apple juice until butter melts. Pour into dish around apples. Cover with foil and bake covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake about 10 –20 more minutes, basting with juices often, until apples are just fork tender.
Serve apples warm topped with warm pan juices.
