Kitchen Antics - Joy of the Baked Apple

This recipe is a variation on a theme that the Old Boy showed me how to make many moons ago. It's a simple, quick and vaguely healthy (apples!) recipe that has only a few ingredients and minimal preparation time. As a result, there will be no metal or cheap Dutch beer to aid the experience.

Here's what you'll need.

Add the Grappa and the coffee to a cup and drink. Then, take the apples, and carefully remove the cores using the technology we know as "an apple corer."

Fashion a plug for the base of your apple by cutting about 1 cm from the bottom of this apple-cylinder. Dispose the remainder of the cores - they are no longer of use to anyone.

Spoon in raspberry jam (you'll need about 2 - 3 teaspoons in each apple, depending upon their size) into the newly created void and wrap completely in aluminium foil.

Then put the apples into a roasting pan and let them sit in a hot (250 degrees) oven for 20 minutes.

Unwrap and serve with custard, and enjoy with another slug of the grappa & espresso
