Recipe

The delicate flavor of lavender flowers gives this dish a surprising and delightful taste. This was a huge hit at the first No-Cook Cooking demonstration I gave. If you have trouble finding lavender flowers, try a tea merchant or specialty tea shop.  You’ll also find suppliers on the Internet.

Yield: Makes 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 apples, depending on the size (Royal Gala, Empire, Fuji or other baking apples)
  • 11⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sherry
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon lavender flowers

Directions

Lightly butter shallow a microwave-safe dish.

1. Peel the apples, cut them in half, then core them and slice them into 6 to 8 slices. Spread them out over the bottom of the buttered baking dish.  Sprinkle with the vanilla, sugar, sherry, cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and half the lavender flowers. Cook at 100% power for about 7 minutes or until the apples are softened and pierce easily with a knife.

2. Transfer the apples to a serving dish and sprinkle with the remaining lavender flowers.

Notes

Tools and Equipment: Pastry brush, shallow microwave-safe dish, vegetable peeler, knife, cutting board, measuring spoon

Angela’s Tip:Don’t have a pastry brush for buttering the dish? Use a piece of parchment paper to spread the butter.
