Introduction: Fire Baked Blackberry Apples
Spiral apples are a great way to get kids to eat more fruit, ours can't seem to resist them! By adding some blackberries, sugar and cinnamon you can turn them into a yummy fireside treat.
Step 1: Ingredients / Tools
- Blackberries (or any other berries, whatever you like!)
- Brown sugar
- Apple peeler/corer/slicer
- Tin foil
Step 2: Spiralize the Apple
Use the slicer to cut the apple. I like to leave the skin on but you could cut that off now as well.
As an alternative to the slicer, use a sharp knife to cut the apple into thin slices. You will also need to cut the core out.
Step 3: Fill the Apple
Add about a 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to a tablespoon of brown sugar. How much cinnamon is a personal choice, about 3/4 of a teaspoon seems to suit most people.
Mix until combined.
Open the apple up and sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mix between each layer.
Stand the apple up and push the blackberries and butter down into the hole where the core was. I use only a small amount of butter and it could be left out although the apple doesn't seem to cook quite as well without it.
Make sure you completely fill the apple.
Place the apple on a square of tin foil.
Fold the foil in and wrap the apple up.
Get the foil as tight as you can to keep all juice and hot air in.
Step 5: Cook
Place the wrapped apples on a medium grill. I used a propane grill in this instance due to current fire restrictions. If using a wood fire try to keep the apples just off the coals to prevent them burning.
Cook for approx 20 minutes or until soft.
Step 6: Serve
Remove the apply from the foil and enjoy!
Goes great with a little ice cream, whipped cream, maple syrup, custard.........
