145 calories per serving
2 large sized apples, cut in half and cored
4 t margarine cut in small pieces
1/2 c orange juice
1 T cider vinegar
1/4 c evaporated milk or half and half
2 T maple syrup
Please apples skin side down in a slow cooker. Place a dot of margarine on each. Pour juice and vinegar mix over the top and cook on high 2-3 hours or until soft. Remove apples to a plate and pour the juice in a pan. Bring juice to a boil and cook on high 5 minutes to reduce to a syrup.
Whip milk and maple syrup in an ice cold bowl for 3 minutes. Top each apple piece with 1/4 of the cream and drizzle with the fruit syrup.
Alternately, skip the milk and just add some maple syrup over the top of the apples for another version of a great dessert for a cold night.
