Baked foil apples are a camping must, whether cooked in the camp fire, a Dutch oven or camp oven there are no reasons not to eat this tasty outdoor dessert.
The best way in my opinion to make baked apples is in foil. This is true whatever the recipe and whether you are cooking them in coals, a camp oven or home stove.
They are a great idea to use apples that may go off while camping. Just don’t underestimate how long they take to cook, hanging around waiting for them t finish after the main course can be a real drag.
dried fruit, such as sultanas, raisins, craisins and/or apricots
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 knob butter
seasoning to taste, such as cinnamon, pumpkin spice or mixed spice
Lay out two sheets of foil big enough to fully wrap the apple.
Core the apple and place it in the middle of the foil.
Combine the dried fruit, sugar, butter and seasoning in a bowl, then stuff into the apple. Alternatively add into the apples core in the order of fruit, butter then spice.
Wrap the apple with the foil there are two main styles.
1/ The Ball and Chain style with the remaining foil twisted to create a handle, or
2/ The Smooth Ball style that will require tongs to position and remove it from the heat.
Place the apples in the heat source of choice and cook for 50 minutes, or until soft.
