Baked Apple with Vanilla & Thyme

Baked Apple with Vanilla & Thyme

Here in New Zealand we are at the end of the apple harvest with a few lone late stragglers stubbornly clinging to the branches even though the leaves have bailed for the year. We’re chomping through cold storage apples so is good that some varieties keep well. From the Gisborne Farmers Market this week we have a mixed bag of Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Granny Smiths. Stay tuned to see how they fare. Meanwhile here is a recipe I prepared during the apple harvest a few seasons past.
