      I am a huge port fan, but I had never done anything but drink it before I found this recipe. I was looking for a more nutritious dessert recipe to serve over the holidays, because I was sick of shortbread and other traditional but boring desserts. I also happened to have a lot of apples on hand, so I went looking for apple dessert recipes and I found this one. I happened to have port on hand

      for the holidays, so this recipe seemed like a great idea. It was a huge hit in my house, and I will be making this often. It is sweet, but sweetened from the port, so it is a different kind of sweet than the kind of sugar sweet. Best yet, without the sugar, this dessert is extremely healthy; as well, it only has about 230 calories per serving.

      Ingredients:

      6 large apples, a sweet variety like Spartan 1/3 cup ...


      • golden raisins 1/3 cup chopped almonds or walnuts Pinch of cloves and nutmeg 1 cup tawny or white port 6 teaspoons butter

        Directions:

        Using melon baller or corer, core each apple, making 1-inch diameter cavity in each centre, leaving the bottom of the apple intact. Peel top 1-inch of each apple; place apples upright in baking dish that holds the apples snuggly. Mix together raisins, almonds, cloves and nutmeg; stuff into cavities in the apples. Pour port over and

        around the apples. Top each cavity with 1 teaspoon of butter. Cover loosely with aluminum foil.

        Bake in 375 F oven until tender, about 60-75 minutes. Uncover, baste with juices and bake until apples are soft and the topping is golden, about 15 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer apples to a serving plate. Pour juices into a saucepan; reduce liquid over high heat until syrupy and reduced to about 1/3 cup. Spoon mixture over apples. Serve warm or at room temperature.

        Makes 6 servings.
