Autumn will soon be upon us, bringing another harvest of fine fruit here in Nova Scotia. Enjoy our recipe for Antigonish Baked Apples!

4 apples
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 teaspoons butter
2/3 cups apple juice
¼ cup sultana raisins
Maple syrup

Wash the apples and core them. Make a shallow cut through the skin around the center of each apple to prevent the skin from cracking during baking. In a bowl, combine the cinnamon, sugar and raisins together. Stuff each apple with this mixture and top off with a teaspoon of butter. Add juices to the pan. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 40 minutes, just until tender. Once the apples are removed from the oven, baste with the pan juices. Serve with your choice of ice-cream, frozen yogurt, whipped cream, yogurt, or sour cream. Drizzle the top with maple syrup. This recipe serves 4, double the recipe for 8.
