Category: Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 1 kg Apples (2 1/4 lb)
  • -- You NEED an apple that
  • -- will hold its shape
  • -- during cooking !!
  • 5 dl Red wine ( 1 pint)
  • 1 Stick cinnamon
  • 250 g Sugar (9 oz)


Ten hours in advance, cook the wine, cinnamon and sugar over a brisk heat
for 10 minutes, using a broad, shallow saucepan.

Peel the apples and, using a melon-baller of about 2.5 cm (1 in) diameter,
cut them into little balls.

Throw the apple-balls into the hot wine. They should not overlap: this is
why you need a broad, shallow pan. Simmer them for 5 to 7 minutes, covered
with aluminium foil to keep them submerged.

When the apples are cooked but still firm, remove the pan from the stove.
Let the apple-balls macerate in the red wine for about 10 hours to take on
a good red colour.

Serving: well chilled, with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, or in a selection
of cold fruit desserts.
