Baked Apples in Rose Water

This is a quick dessert or an alternative to a full breakfast. I love the twist of having salty spices with this dish. It makes it exotic, light and complete to the palate.

Serves 4 people
20 minutes

Rose water has numerous benefits. It is antibacterial, soothing, healing, and has antiseptic properties. It's rich in flavonoids and vitamins includind A, C, D, E and B3. It also lowers the risks of bladder infections and heart disease, relieves digestive problems and nervous tension, relieves eye irritation and dental pains caused by paradontosis.
It is great at soothing skin irritations.


4 apples, cut into slices
½ tsp coriander
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp lucuma
2 tsp cylon cinnamon
2 tsp mirin
2 tsp rose water

A pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 340 degrees.

Cover the baking pan with ghee, and put all of the ingredients in the pan.

Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot in a nice dessert cup.
