Another Reason to Pick Up Those Adorable Tiny Apples
Those miniature apples you see in stores in the fall aren't just lovely decorations for your holiday table. Keyser and Friend say you can peel these so-called lady apples (or crab apples), leaving the stems on if they have them, set them upright in a baking dish and pour a mixture of maple syrup, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt over them. Bake for an hour, until they're tender and lightly caramelized, and serve them at room temperature, or warm, alongside Gouda or cheddar for an ideal cool-weather pairing.
