Wine Poached Apples

This is really nice on a crisp fall evening…


Wine Poached Apples

  • 6 small apples, peeled, cored and cut in half
  • 3 cups vegan white wine
  • 2 cups water (more if necessary to submerge apples in your pan)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • peeled zest of 1 lemon (peeled in long slices)
  • vegan whipped cream, cinnamon, toasted slices almonds for garnish
  1. Set the apples aside, and add all the other ingredients to a large, wide pot. Mix to combine, and bring to a simmer.
  2. Add apples to the liquid, arranged in a single layer and completely submerged (add more water if you have to).
  3. Simmer 20-25 minutes, until tender.
  4. Remove apples carefully from the liquid. Set aside to cool.
  5. Remove lemon zest strips and cinnamon sticks and set aside.
  6. Turn heat up to medium and continue to cook until it becomes a syrup. It will take a lot of time, but all of a sudden it gets all foamy and Poof! you have syrup.
  7. Arrange apple halves on a plate, garnish with lemon zest, whipped cream, cinnamon, almonds; drizzle with syrup.

You’ll have extra syrup left over; it tastes great over oatmeal or baked apples, too!

    Those apples look delectable! I have a vegan Apple Cranberry stuffed "free-range" tofurkey recipe up on my blog today. Enjoy!

  2. Any recommendations for types of apple? I’ve got about 8 lbs of McIntoshes and I have to tip toe back to the apartment with store bought apples for recipes that say I can’t use them. The boyfriend looks on with a raised-eyebrow-“more apples?”-kind of expression when he sees the infiltrators.

    I don’t actually remember what I used! One would think that it would be good to use Granny Smiths, but I probably used whatever I had hanging around- which could well have included McIntosh apples. I know that I used McIntosh for apple turnovers a long time ago-, but it didn’t use up a whole lot. I think I may well have made them into pie, as well.
