• Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 apples
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Nectar
  • Vanilla Ice Cream or Sliced Pound Cake (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Spray a ceramic baking dish with nonstick spray.
  3. Core the apples, and cut them into fairly large chunks, leaving the peel on. Almost any seasonal apple is great except Red Delicious.
  4. Place the chunks either peel side-down or on their sides in the baking dish. The apple chunks will shrink as they roast, so don’t worry about crowding. Just make sure the pieces are in a single layer. Put the dish into the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until the apples are done just the way you like them—tender to the touch or when a fork slides easily into the flesh.
  5. Transfer the apples to a plate or a platter with a rim.
  6. Use ¼ cup of Balsamic Nectar to deglaze the baking dish. Scrape and swish it around with a wooden spoon to catch all the glazed fruit tidbits that have stuck during the roasting process. Pour it directly over the roasted fruit.
  7. To serve, place a portion of sliced apples on a plate with pound cake or vanilla ice cream and drizzle the remaining ¼ cup of Balsamic Nectar across the top of each plate.
