Warm Apples and Ice Cream

Warm Apples and Ice Cream
Serves 4

4 large green apples
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
A pinch ground cloves or 1 whole clove
1 litre/or close to a pint of vanilla ice cream
1 spray container whipped cream/ or bottle which you whip up.
Freshly grated nutmeg

Pre-heat a medium skillet over medium to medium-high heat.

Peel and quarter the apples. Core each quarter. Slice the apples up. Add butter to the skillet, then apples. Sauté 7-8 minutes, add sugar, cinnamon and cloves and cook 2 minutes more.

Spoon the sautéed apples into dessert dishes and top with ice cream, whipped cream, and garnish with grated nutmeg.

Another idea for apples is to fry apple rings in butter in the frypan. This is a dutch method I think? Also you can make apple fritters (kind of like in New Zealand we purchase pineapple rings from the fish & chip shop, you can just make a light sweet batter for apple rings and fry in the fry pan. But just plain with butter is fine too. Heli
