Apple Delight is deliciously delightful. Clean and simple are the only accurate words to describe this easy to prepare dessert. The slight souriness of the apples is balanced by the sweetness of the raisins. A topping of slivered almonds and whole coconut milk give it crunch and creaminess.
The yin (alkaline) apples, almonds, and raisins balance out any meat meal that’s yang (acid).
2 or 3 organic Braeburns or apple of your choice
1/2 Cup of organic raisins
1/2 Cup filtered water
1/2 Cup of slivered almonds
1/4 to 1/2 Cup of coconut milk
1. Quarter and core apples. Cut each quarter into 5 or 6 pieces.
2. Place raisins in the bottom of a sauce pan. Cover with filtered water.
3. Add apple pieces.
4. Cover and simmer until apples are soft.
5. Serve in bowls.
6. Top with coconut milk and almond slivers.
Suggestions and modifications:
The slivered almonds can be toasted to make them extra crunchy and to heighten their flavor. Different nuts can be used. I wanted a yin (alkaline) nut to balance the beef we had for dinner.
Different apples or fruit may be used. I selected Braeburn Apples. The Braeburns were actually sweet, but when paired with the raisins, they tasted slightly sour! I’ve tried this recipe with MacIntosh Apples and they were also great with the raisins, only more sour.
Make sure to purchase organic apples since non-organic apples are heavily sprayed.
Cinnamon or nutmeg can be sprinkled on top.
You may just want to mash the steamed apples with a fork and eat this luscious treat as apple sauce.
Other milks or creams may also be used.
