Caramelized Apples Recipe


  1. 1 cup Greek yogurt or labneh
    1 tablespoon La Boîte Reims N.39 spice blend, divided
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
    3 Fuji or Honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 8 wedges each
    2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1 cup ruby port
    Zest of an orange


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and 1 teaspoon Reims N.39 spice blend. Refrigerate.
  2. In a large sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat; add apple wedges and sugar. Cook over medium-high heat, flipping the apple wedges, until caramelized, about 4 minutes. Add the ruby port and orange zest, and continue cooking for another 4 minutes.
  3. Divide the cooked apples among 4 serving bowls, and drizzle with the port cooking syrup. Top each bowl with a dollop of the Reims yogurt cream. Serve immediately.

Serves 4.
