Grandma's Baked Apples - Portuguese Style
Posted on September 20 2021
The Oeste region in Portugal, holds the country's largest production of orchards at 40% - the mild year round climate provides the essential nutrients and soil for excellence in the quality and different types of apples. Our family grew 2 types of apples: Golden smith and Royal Gala.
We prefer the Golden Smith as it's a firm and succulent apple, perfect for baking.
6 Golden Smith apples cored
6 cinnamon sticks
6 tsp of brown sugar
Pre heat oven to 360 F
Wash and core the apples
Insert a cinnamon stick and 1 tsp of brown sugar in each apple core
Let it bake for approx. 25 - 30 mts. if you like them softer leave them up to 40 mts.
If you don't feel like baking, then enjoy this beautiful scent with our
