Wormy Baked Apples

This is another fun recipe that takes advantage of garden gains, if you happen to have an apple tree in the back yard. In any case, it is a fun recipe that will delight children and impress adults, and it tastes good, too!

8 Golden Delicious Apples
3/4 cup chopped raisins
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 stick butter
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/8 cup water
8 gummy worms

Core the apple from the bottom side, keeping the stem intact. Stuff the apples from bottom with mixture of raisins, walnuts and 1/3 of brown sugar. Set apples, stem side up, in Pyrex baking dish.

In a sauce pan, mix brown sugar, water, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir continuously over med-high heat until mixture boils. Then pour over and around apples in Pyrex dish. Set oven to 350 degrees. Place apples in oven, uncovered. Every ten minutes or so, baste apples with the sauce in bottom of dish.

When apples are tender (about 35 minutes), remove from oven. When apples have cooled remove to a small bowl and spoon in some of the sauce. Now cut a small hole in the top corner of each apple and insert the tail of a gummy worm. It will look for all the world like a worm exiting your baked apple.
