Our international culinary tour wouldn’t be complete without a dessert. And Miss A wouldn’t have eaten that fish without the promise of a sweet treat! So we wrapped up our Libyan meal with a Libyan recipe for Baked Apples and Honey. The recipe is simple and doesn’t need a lot of ingredients or work. We started by dissolving some sugar in water and then dropped in some red food coloring. Mr. N then poured the syrup over a couple of peeled and cored apples in a baking dish.
After 10 minutes of cooling, we placed them in the refrigerator until it was time to serve them. When it was time for dessert, we scooped cream cheese into the centers of the apples and topped with pitted cherries.
Finally, we drizzled some honey and the remaining syrup over the apples to serve. The kids happily ate their apples; although Mr. N wasn’t to thrilled about the choice of fruit. He’ll eat an apple, but it’s not his favorite. He did enjoy the flavor though and gave it 2-1/2 spoons. And Miss A said hers was yummy turning up a 3 spoon rating. Dad also enjoyed his dessert and gave it 3 spoons. As for me, I took a little bite that tasted pretty good, but let’s be honest here…I was holding out for my final trip to the freezer to finish up my secret stash of strawberry lemon bars. 🙂
