BAKED STUFFED APPLE
Happy Valentine's day!
I am sharing this recipe for Valentine's day, so that you can cook this special sweet item, on a special day for someone who is really special to you and enjoy the day.
There is a proverb in English language, it says -An apple a day, keeps the doctor away, if that is the case then why not eat an apple in a style and use it in our recipes also, like this one which I am sharing and get more benefit of this nutritional fruit. Apple is actually used in many cuisines of the world, many baked and sweet recipes are made with it.
When I talk about apples and fruits in general, I really miss South Africa. In South Africa, many fruits are grown on a very large scale by commercial farmers, which are exported to many neighbouring countries like- Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland, Lesotho and Namibia. Even exported to other countries which are far from South Africa. In Calgary, Canada, I have seen South African oranges are sold in some of the shops.
I remember, when I was in South Africa, our drive from Rustenburg to Pretoria, which is around 100 km, was so enchanting and cool because our eyes could see only orange orchards on the right side of the road, for kilometres and kilometres in our journey. And if the season is winter, those short orange trees were bending down with the weight of hundreds of oranges on them. The mixed colour of orange and green was really pleasing to the eyes.
