5 basic rules of baked apples + 4 simple recipes

How to bake apples in order to preserve their useful properties and get a delicious delicacy?

Apples baked in the oven with various fillings – a traditional autumn dessert. In addition, apples are very useful for the body, and in baked form, they become even more useful because they are absorbed much better by the body.

Rule 1. Choose the “right” apples.

They should be of medium or large size, not wormy, preferably sweet. If you have only sour on hand, they should be sweetened properly, because when baking, sour apples will become even more sour.

Rule 2. Tasty stuffing.

The classic ingredients for this dish are honey, cinnamon, nuts and cottage cheese. Honey will need quite a bit – a teaspoon of an apple. Cinnamon can be mixed with sweetener.

Rule 3. Processing apples.

First they must be rinsed under running water. Apples from the store must be washed with detergent and a sponge to wash off the wax, which is processed apples for long-term storage.

Rule 4. Preparing apples for baking.

To begin with, let’s define how we bake apples. If baked whole, then just cut off the top and sprinkle with a small amount of sugar mixed with cinnamon. You can do the same with halves of apples. But if we stuff the apples, first carefully cut out the middle part, and then with the help of a spoon we remove the apple flesh. If the apples are baked in dough, then we cut out the middle part, peel the skin and sprinkle it with lemon juice so that the apples do not darken quickly.

Rule 5. The temperature and time of roasting.

If the oven is heated too much, the apples may burst, if on the contrary, they will not bake. Therefore, we choose the optimal temperature – 180 degrees. With the help of a toothpick make a few generations in the peel of apples.

Bake the apples in the oven for about twenty minutes. Although the cooking time can vary. It all depends on who likes what more. Many prefer apples to crunch slightly. Then they need to be baked not too long. For those who, on the contrary, love when they fall apart, you need to bake a little longer, wait until the peel starts to burst on the apples.
