Sweet and savory combine in this pretty make-ahead side dish.

Times

  • Prep Time : 20 min min
  • Ready Time : 20 min

Servings

6 servings s

Ingredients

  • 3 shallots,:sliced thinly
  • 2 cloves:garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup:chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon:chopped fresh thyme
  • 3 fresh:sage leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons:fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 cup:fresh whole wheat bread, crust trimmed off and cubed
  • 1/4 cup:pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup:dried apricots
  • 1 tablespoon:pomegranate paste
  • 1/4 cup:chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup:white wine
  • 3 tablespoons:honey
  • 6 large:firm apples

Directions

Preparation

  1. Sauté the shallots with a small amount of olive oil until lightly browned and caramelized (about 7 minutes).
  2. Add the garlic and fresh herbs and cubed bread. Continue cooking until the bread has toasted slightly and the garlic has softened and is very fragrant about 5 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Place the dates and apricots in a food processor and pulse 10-12 times until the dates and apricots are chopped and are clumping together.
  4. Remove the fruit to medium bowl and add the pomegranate paste, the chicken stock and shallot mixture and stir until well combined.
  5. Stuff the mixture into the cored apples. You should have enough stuffing to generously stuff the apples and have some of the stuffing “pop” out of the top of the apples. (I love this part as it gets crispy on top!).
  6. Place the apples in a baking dish and pour white wine and honey around the apples. Bake the apples until they are soft and wrinkly (about 30-45 minutes).

I like the play of savory and sweet together in this dish. I also love the earthy herbs with the dried fruit and fresh apples. Baked apples with stuffing make a pretty presentation and can be made up to two days before serving. The apples can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator.
