BAKED APPLES WITH HONEY AND GINGER
from "Kitchen of Light" by Andreas Viestad

This is a light dessert, filled with honey's sweetness and a clean spiciness from the ginger. Ginger, although undeniably a very "exotic" and Eastern spice to many, has been known in Scandinavia at least since the sixteenth century, perhaps as far back as the fourteenth century. Ginger was originally used for medicinal purposes, but it gradually worked its way into many Scandinavian cakes and desserts.

PREPARATION

Preheat the oven to 450° F.
Remove the core from each apple without cutting all the way through, forming a hollow 2/3 inch to 1 inch in diameter. (If you are preparing the apples in advance, brush them with lemon juice to prevent discoloring.) Place the apples in a baking dish.
Fill the cavities with the honey and chopped ginger and top each one off with a small lump of butter.
Bake on the lowest oven rack for about 45 minutes, until the apples are tender. Check on the apples every once in a while—if there are signs that the honey is burning, turn down the heat. Serve hot or warm, topping each apple with a teaspoon or more of the sour cream, if desired.
