The hills around Ithaca are dotted with apple orchards, providing us with bushels of crisp, carefully cultivated apples. Every week of autumn brings a beautiful, newly ripe variety to enjoy. We celebrate the bounty with this simple, old time recipe, an enduring favorite.

  • ½ cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple juice

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°
  2. Wash and core the apples, leaving the bottoms intact.
  3. Partially peel each apple in horizontal rings or vertical stripes.
  4. In a bowl, combine the walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup.
  5. Stuff the hollowed-out center of each apple with the nut mixture.
  6. Place the apples upright and close together in the pan.
  7. Combine the apple juice with the remaining 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and pour around the apples.
  8. Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and bake for about 4 5 minutes, until the apples are tender.
