4 medium cooking apples
15ml/1 tbsp honey
Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
15ml/1 tbsp butter, melted


Serves: 4


1. Remove the cores from the apples, leaving them whole. Cut four squares of double thickness baking foil, to wrap the apples, and brush with butter.

2. With a cannelle or sharp knife, cut lines through the apple skin at regular intervals.

3. Mix together the honey, lemon rind, juice and butter in a small bowl.

4. Spoon the mixture into the apples and wrap in foil, sealing the edges securely. Cook on a hot barbecue for 20 minutes, until the apples are tender.
