  • 4 apples, pared and quartered
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • sprig of fresh mint


  1. In a saucepan, bring the wine and the sugar to a slow boil.
  2. Add apples, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove apples and place in a serving dish.
  4. Continue to simmer the wine/sugar mixture until it is about 1/2 the volume and is syrupy.
  5. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  6. Pour syrup over apples.
  7. Place fresh mint on top
  8. You can serve this, warm or cold, with cream, whipped cream, or ice cream or just eat as is.  

This makes about 4 servings.
