These baked cinnamon and maple apples are super tender and caramelized thanks to the ability to control steam in the Anova Precision Oven. The apples are first steamed until soft, and then they’re given a big blast of dry heat to caramelize. The result is wonderfully delicious baked apples that make a perfect pie filling, base for apple crumble, or simple dessert served with vanilla bean ice cream.
