6 apples, cored
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Pinch of nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup apple cider
2 tablespoons maple syrup
¼ cup heavy cream
1. Set the oven at 350 degrees. You’ll need a 9×9 baking dish.
2. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each apple to ensure that they sit flat. Place them in the baking dish. With a paring knife, prick a few steam holes in the top of each apple.
3. In a small bowl, combine cranberries, pecans, brown sugar, butter, nutmeg and cinnamon. Fill the centers of the apples with the cranberry mixture. Pile any extra filing on top.
4. In the small bowl, whisk together apple cider and maple syrup. Pour the liquid over the top of the apples.
5. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the apples are tender, basting every 10 minutes.
6. Drain off the cooking liquid, and whisk in the heavy cream. Pour over the top of the apples.
This serves 6, or possibly fewer if they really like baked apples!
Heart Healthy Eating
What you eat affects your risk for having heart disease and poor blood circulation, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Heart disease is the #1 killer and stroke is the #3 killer of American women and men.
To help you prevent heart disease and stroke, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has developed three heart healthy eating plans:
- Heart Healthy Diet is for people who do not have heart disease and want to keep their blood cholesterol levels at healthy levels. Unhealthy cholesterol levels can, in time, lead to heart disease.
- Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) Diet is for people with unhealthy blood cholesterol levels.
- Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) eating plan is for people with high blood pressure, or hypertension. Hypertension can raise your risk of heart disease and stroke.
For more information on these eating plans, see our Heart Healthy Eating Fact Sheet.
