Healthy Stuff: Apples

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"
Here in Washington, WE LOVE OUR APPLES!!! I remember when I was in college in San Diego, it was all about their oranges. OK, love those too, but apples...they rule. Great healthy snack, perfect in desserts and muffins, and awesome sauteed as a side for pork and ham. Apples are high in vitamins A and C, and are rich in the antioxidants. Spicy Apple Brown Betty

10-12 baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 teaspoon each cinnamon and cardamom
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 lb butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 lemon, juice

Optional: pour a shot Calvados on after taking out of oven...YUM!

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Arrange slices in the bottom of a lightly greased 12x9 pan.
Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Mix flour and brown sugar.
Cut in butter until crumbly and set aside.
Syrup: Combine ingredients and stir well.
Drizzle half of mixture over apples.
