4 Granny Smith apples, or apples you have available
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup apple cider
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup salted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
B&B kiln dried hickory wood
heavy-duty aluminum foil
Start a campfire using the kiln dried hickory wood.
Generously hollow out the top of each apple using a paring knife or melon baller.
Using a fork, mix together the raisins, oats, apple cider, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stuff the mixture into the hollowed out apples.
Double-wrap each apple in foil, then place directly on the hot coals. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the apples are just tender.
Carefully remove the apples from the coals, unwrap (being careful of the steam), and enjoy.
