Cook with Me Friday: Our Lady of the Baked Apple

Are Apples Really Good For You? You bet your Apple Brown Betty they are! Not only are apples good for you, but they are mighty tasty too and may bolster your weight loss efforts.
The State University of Rio de Janeiro studied the effect of fruit intake on weight loss. They found that overweight women who ate three fruits a day, either apples or pears, lost more weight on a low-calorie plan than women who did not add fruit to their diet.
Fruits like apples and pears are “low energy-density” foods. They are low in calories and high in fiber, leaving you feeling fuller longer. Apples are a natural appetite suppressant! Research also shows that eating a high-fiber diet decreases total calorie intake, which leads to weight loss.
Apples also lower the risk of heart disease and strokes, fight cancer, make teeth whiter, prevent diverticulosis, keep the digestive tract running smoothly, lower cholesterol, and protect against asthma.

BAKED APPLE by Stevie Dinner. (Stevie Dinner, a graduate of the Culinary Institute and owner of a pastry shop for twelve years, managed to permanently remove 45 pounds. If Stevie can do it in the face of PASTRY, we can too.)
Juicy and sweet, apples are only 80 calories, and they provide 5 grams of dietary fiber. They are a good source of iron, potassium and vitamins and are also rich in flavanoids and antioxidants.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Wash and core four (4) tart apples.
Mix 1/4 cup brown sugar with 1-1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
and rind from one (1) lemon.
Place apples in an 8 x 8 pan.
Distribute sugar mixture evenly inside the cored apples.
Pour 1/2 cup boiling water into pan (not on top of the apples).
Squeeze lemon and add juice to pan.
Bake apples for about 30 minutes or until soft,
not mushy, basting every 10 minutes.
Spread the word … NOT the icing!
