Randy’s Recipes: Apple-Paleeza Oatmeal (Randyjw; December 5, 2016)
2 apples, cored
Manischewitz Concord Grape Wine (or your choice; other liquors work, also)
1 can Bartlett Pears in Syrup, diced, removed from syrup
Several packets Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Apples and Cinnamon flavor (rolled oats, puffed-corn style additions, granola, etc. also work)
Other add-ins (optional): fresh or dried fruits, like: raisins, cranberries, blueberries, apricots, peaches, jams, etc.; whipped cream topping, meringue topping; more dessert-style spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, etc. Use your imagination!
Place cored apples in an oven-proof baking dish and pour wine over top, allowing to fill dish about one-inch deep. Bake in oven at 350°F for about 55 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, then slice apples into bite-sized pieces. Boil water for oatmeal and prepare according to package directions, then let cool. Dice pears and sprinkle with cardamom. Combine all three preparations. Place in container in refrigerator for several days to let flavors develop and meld. Enjoy.
