Apples Poached in Chamomile
Servings: 2
Prep time: 15

Gala apples are mild tasting and naturally sweet and are a wonderful choice for these gently poached apples. The mix of their natural sweetness with the calming effects of chamomile tea makes a soothing, delicious treat for a delicate tummy! For extra flavor, use honey instead of agave.

Preparation

1. In a saucepan over a medium high flame, bring the water to a boil. Once the water has begun boiling, turn off the heat. Add in the tea bags and let them steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the bags.

 

2. Stir the agave into the tea and bring to a slow simmer over a medium flame.

3. Add the apples, lower the flame to medium low and gently simmer the apple slices until you can easily poke through them with a fork, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove apples from liquid. Set aside.

4. Raise the heat to medium high and reduce the remaining liquid to 1/3 cup. Gently spoon over the apples. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Ann’s Tips and Tricks

If you can’t find Gala, use Fuji or Golden Delicious.
For extra deliciousness, bruise the leaves of sprig or 2 of fresh lavender, and add to the tea.
