Fall's favorite fruit has to be the apple. This week, we'll share five ways to maximize your apple enjoyment. Today's recipe comes from the Web site


6 sweet, firm apples, such as Rome Beauties or Empires-peeled, cored, and cut into 8 to 10 wedges

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

4 tablespoons butter, melted

3/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup rum or 1/2 cup maple syrup

2 pints vanilla ice cream


Turn on broiler. Toss the apples with the lemon juice, butter, and all but 2 tablespoons of the sugar. (Can be made to this point up to 1 day ahead. Store in a resealable plastic bag and refrigerate.) Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Broil the apples about 8 inches from the heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and broil until melted. Meanwhile, heat the rum or maple syrup in a small saucepan over low heat. Serve the apples warm with vanilla ice cream. Drizzle with the warm rum or syrup.
