Posted the original version of this recipe here. After some experimentation, have found this version of the recipe to be much tastier - using red apples instead of green really makes a difference in flavor.


APPLES WITH RED WINE SAUCE (v.2)

6 large red apples (Roman, McIntosh or similar)
1 ripe nectarine (optional)*
2/3 bottle red wine (Syrah works well)
1/2 cup brown sugar
half a dozen cinnamon sticks
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 cup honey


In a saucepan, bring the wine, cinnamon sticks, honey and sugar to a boil; reduce heat while you prepare the apples.

Peel, core and segment the apples. Add to wine mixture.

Turn heat back up until it begins to boil; then turn heat down, and cover. Cook approximately 20-30 minutes, until apples are tender. Remove cinnamon sticks once you have finished cooking.

Serve hot or chilled.




* note: the nectarine was an ingredient I added because I was 1 short on apples, but it turned out quite nicely. One could probably make this recipe entirely with nectarines and it would probably taste good.
