Ingredients:

  • 5-6 large McIntosh apples
  • 2 oz. Vino Cotto di Montillo
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons butter, chilled, cut into pieces
  • vanilla or vanilla fudge swirl ice cream

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Lightly coat the bottom and sides of a 13" x 9" x 2" inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Peel, core and cut apples into ¼” slices.
  • Drizzle vino cotto over apples and gently toss to coat.
  • Pour contents of bowl into the baking dish.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well.
  • Add butter pieces to mixture. Using a large table fork, press butter into the flour mixture to form a granular mixture. Sprinkle the topping over the apples.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, checking periodically to avoid burning. If the topping begins to brown before the apples are fork tender, loosely cover the baking dish with a piece of tinfoil.
  • When the apples are fork tender, remove the tinfoil and finish browning the topping.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature with ice cream. Yield: 8 servings

Adjust our delicious balsamic vinegar recipe to taste just the way you want it to...No surprises! You can make it as sweet or vinegary as you desire.

In case you're wondering, read the back of any store-bought balsamic vinegar.  Look for the ingredient "mosto cotto" or "cooked grape must"--that ingredient is Vino Cotto!  Unlike some balsamic vinegar brands, yours will not contain any additives, sweeteners, preservatives, or colorants.  This makes yours a much healthier alternative for your family.

Use your homemade balsamic vinegar in all recipes that list it as an ingredient. Your family and friends will love what you make.  And, you'll have bragging rights, too. You can say, "I even made the balsamic vinegar!" But, if you prefer that the dish not having a vinegary flavor to it, replace the balsamic vinegar with just Vino Cotto.  It will come out delicious!
