Cheap, plentiful and healthy, apples are in season! Today’s Dysfunctional Chef’s Cheap n’ Healthy Eat, showcases the Virginia Winesap, a well-known American heirloom apple whose origins are unknown, although they probably date back to the 18th century. Winesaps are tart and they can be eaten fresh, but they are primarily a culinary apple. They make a mean cider and are the perfect choice for poaching!
Here is a kick tush recipe that is bound to impress, and it weighs in at 116 calories per serving, giving you plenty of bag for your calorie buck!
Orange Poached Apple
6 small Winesap apples
1 stick cinnamon
1 1/2 cups orange juice (freshly squeezed is always fun)

In 2 quart sauce-pot, combine orange juice, sherry and cinnamon; heat to boil.
