Baked Apple with Truffle Wine Jelly
An indulgent side dish or a gourmet dessert, these delicious baked apples are given a divine touch by the addition of a richly aromatic Tokaji wine jelly infused with fragrant black truffles. The delicate sweetness of the wine jelly perfectly complements the natural tartness of the apple and the mineral acidity of the sparkling wine, while the earthy truffle aromas turn this into a truly irresistible treat.
It makes a great accompaniment to roast meat, especially pork and beef, while served with some fresh whipped cream on the side, it is your one-way ticket to gastronomic bliss.
Cut the whole apples into 2-3mm wide slices, then remove the cores.
In a medium bowl, combine the sparkling wine with the honey and the ground spices.
Pre-heat the oven to 150 C° and grease a dish with the butter.
Place the apple slices into the dish, then pour the sparkling wine mixture over the slices.
Bake for 40 minutes, occasionally basting the apples with the juice.
Let the apples cool, then top with the truffle wine jelly.
