    6      lg            Golden Delicious, Ida Red or Rome Apples
      1/4  c             walnuts -- chopped
      1/4  c             packed brown sugar
    2      tbsp          stick butter -- softened
      1/2  tsp           ground cinnamon
      1/4  c             dark rum or apple cider or juice
      1/4  c             honey
    1      tbsp          fresh lemon juice
    1      tbsp          minced crystallized ginger
 
 Heat oven to 350°.  Have ready a 13x9x2-inch bakind dish or other
 shallow 3 1/2 to 4 quart baking dish.
 
 Core apples without cutting through to bottom, making a cavity about 1
 inch wide.  Using a vegetable peeler, peel apples halfway down.  Put
 walnuts, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon in small bowl and stir until
 blended.  Stuff mixture into apple cavities.  Spoon 1/2 tsp rum over
 filling in each apple.
 
 Place apples in baking dish.  Put remaining rum, the honey, lemon juice
 and ginger in a small bowl and whisk until blended.  Drizzle over and
 around apples.  
 
 Bake, basting apples with pan juice a few times, until apples are tender
 when pierced with a knife, 45-55 minutes.  Serve warm or at room
 temperature.
