We really enjoyed baking whole apples today. It was an easy and fun seasonal activity, found in one of our favorite books, Earthways. The best part is that my little one was involved in the entire activity, all I did was core the apples. My little one mixed up the dates, raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon. Then, she stuffed the mixture into the openings. How fun. She put some water in the bottom of the baking dish and we baked the apples for 45 minutes - 1 hour at 350 degrees. The wonderful smell of cinnamon and apples filled our house and the apples were a delicious treat.
