Since completed the liver cleanse, as detailed in the book, Liver Rescue, one of my ongoing goals is to eat three apples a day. I’ve mostly enjoyed a sliced apple or two with afternoon tea and another one as an after dinner snack. Occasionally I combine apples with other fruits or veggies to create a freshly prepared blended juice.
This evening I came up with another way to meet my apple quota, using the pressure pot. Simple, nutritious and delicious, the steamed apple dessert was a perfect after dinner treat.
Steamed Apple Dessert
Steamed Apple Dessert
- 4 apples
- 1/2 cup organic maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp raisins optional
- 2 tbsp walnuts optional
- Wash, core and slice apples, leaving the peeling on. Place sliced apples in a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, combine organic maple syrup and cinnamon.
- Pour maple syrup mixture over sliced apple, mixing to coat.
- Add 1/2 water to bottom of pressure pot. Arrange apple slices on steamer rack.
- Cover pressure pot and lock lid into place. Select steamer option. Steam for 5 minutes. Release steam manually.
- Serve steamed apple slices with organic raisins and walnuts if desired.
The steamed apple dessert took less than 10 minutes to prepare. Warm and fragrant, the apples tasted like the filling in apple pie, but without the sugar.
I added a spoonful of organic raisins and a few walnuts. What a great after dinner treat. These steamed apples could top banana ice cream or gluten free oatmeal as well.
Apples, red skinned apples especially, provide powerful benefits. They play a crucial role in fighting inflammation of all kinds. Apples calm the systems of the body by reducing viral and bacterial loads that contribute to inflammation. In addition, the phytochemicals in apples feed the neurons of the brain and increase electrical activity. That makes them brain food! Apples also cleanse the liver and help to dissolve gallstones.
I am determined to do more than eat an apple a day, to keep the doctor away. If one is good for my health, three are even better. To that end, I’ll be enjoying steamed apple dessert frequently, as a lovely and tasty tribute to all the goodness in this amazing fruit.
