This recipe was easy peasy to put together and I love the addition of the crystallized ginger! A great desert that I didn't feel super guilty in eating. Thank you Mikekey for sharing. Made it for Pick Me Tag game.

Was gifted with lovely freshly picked large great tasting apples, your recipe had me think back my mom's baked apples one,of my favorite childhood desserts! Loved the addition of the ginger and lemon, (had to improvise and make my own crystallized ginger - on my shop list) Like all the previous reviewers have said these baked apples make for one great tasting dessert!

OMG,Mike - these are so good! I really love the creative use of the crystallized ginger - and the lemon zest and juice puts it over the top. No more boring baked apples for me! I did bake them longer than instructed, but only because I wanted them softer and more color on them. Delish!

Great flavour combination of ginger, cinnamon, lemon and apple - I only baked mine for 30 minutes (running late) so it was not really mushy soft but still a bit firm - nice texture. Thanks Mike for a keeper recipe
