Manzanas en Dulce con Vainilla (Sweet Apples with Vanilla)



2 cups water

2 pounds of apples (approximately 8 large apples) cored, peel, and cut into quarters

4 cups sugar (or to taste depending on tartness of apples)

3 Mexican Vanilla Beans, chopped


In a heavy-bottomed, deep pot, put water, sugar, and vanilla beans, and bring to boil. When it’s boiling, add apples. Cook until apples are tender and remove from heat. Apples can be served warm or chilled, with crema, vanilla whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream.
