A fabulous grown-up version of baked apples.
Apples are half peeled, cored, and stuffed with a mixture of lemon, lemon zest, ginger, raisins, and dark brown sugar. They are covered and baked - which gives your kitchen a heavenly lemon/ginger aroma. They are then uncovered, apple juice is added. Apples are then basted and baked for another 10 minutes.

We didn't have the golden raisins or currents called for, and instead used a mix of dark raisins and craisins.

The apples came out perfectly - softened but still with a bit of crunch. We ate ours with vanilla ice cream. The apples themselves were not very sweet, and so for me, serving with yogurt might not have been as good.

Don't miss the juice in the bottom of the pan. So flavorful. That juice alone would make an amazing yogurt/ice cream topping!
