This is a very simple desert that can be made while grilling or making a poitjie on a charcoal fire. The apples are perfect for a cold camping night. They dissolve in your mouth in what can only be called a flavor explosion.

The Ingredients

  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup nuts, chopped (brazil, almond and macadamia are the best)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbs. rum or liquor of choice
  • 4 red apples, cored and peeled
  • 4 tsp. margarine or butter

The Steps

  1. Mix the honey or maple syrup, sugar, raisins, nuts, cinnamon and rum together.
  2. Peel the apples. Using a sharp, thin knife, cut out the core leaving a 1-1½ inch hole through the apple.
  3. Place the apple in the center of a 12-inch piece of aluminum foil and spoon the filling inside until full. Place 1 tsp of butter on top of the filling. Wrap the foil around the apple. Repeat for the remaining apples. You should have about ½ cup of the filling leftover.
  4. Set the apples directly next to the lit charcoal and cook for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or so.
  5. Meanwhile simmer the remaining filling with ½ cup water over medium heat until thickened slightly, 5-10 minutes.
  6. Pull the apples from the fire. Unwrap, slice open and and top with the reduced sauce.
