1/3 cup (78 ml) unsweetened apple juice
1/3 cup (78 ml) dry white wine
1/3 cup (78 ml) water
2 tablespoons (30 ml) grated orange zest
4 medium-size, 6 ounces (180 g) each, baking apples
ground cinnamon to taste
1 tablespoon (15 ml) ground walnuts
Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C), Gas Mark 5.
In a small pot simmer the apple juice, wine, and water with the orange zest for 10 minutes.
Core the apples and remove peel from the top 1/3 of each apple. Using a small spoon, remove and discard the core and seed. Place in a small baking dish just big enough for the apples. Pour apple juice mixture around the apples and sprinkle each apple with cinnamon. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the apples are cooked through but still hold their shape.
Place each apple in a small dessert dish. Top with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of the cooking liquid and 1/4 of the walnuts. Serve warm.
