BAKED HONEY APPLES

This is an old recipe from Colorado.

2 1/4 cups water
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp honey
6 large tart apples
1 cup golden raisins

In a saucepan, bring water, brown sugar, and honey to a boil. Remove saucepan from the heat. Core the apples and peel the top third of each one. Place the apples, bottom side down--cut bottom enough so they will stand, if necessary--in a 9-inch baking dish. Fill apples with raisins and sprinkle any raisins into the pan. Pour sugar syrup over the apples. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until tender. Baste occassionally during baking. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.

Yield: 6 servings.
