Warm Spiced Fruit

Apples for Warm Spiced Fruit

Green Apples add a Little Bit of Tart

This simple recipe is perfect for a variety of dishes. The cinnamon and nutmeg combined with the apples and pears makes for the ideal warm and tasty treat.  This dish is great served at breakfast or as the perfect compliment to your favorite dinner entree. It could also be served as a dessert, spooned over a bowl of vanilla ice cream. So easy and delicious.

We serve it with our Ayurvedic Steel Cut Oatmeal for a warm and filling breakfast at the retreat.  Use your choice of apples. I recommend going organic if you leave the skins on. For extra deliciousness and health benefits, add a cup of chopped nuts of your choice. I top my Oatmeal and Fruit with East Texas pecans.
