THIS recipe is really for a very superior kind of baked apple, well worth the extra trouble as the flavour is really excellent.
Use large Bramley apples for the most taste, one per person. Quantities here are for six.
Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180 deg C, 350 deg F.
Wash the apples and remove the cores, stand close together in a large well-buttered dish.
Mix together the chopped dates, sultanas, raisins, almonds, orange rind and juice, and use the mixture to fill the centres of the apples. Pack any extra around the apples.
Mix the brown sugar with the spice and put some on top of each apple.
Top with a little piece of butter on each one. Pour over the sherry.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45-60 minutes.
Serve hot or cold with cream.
