Catalan Stuffed Apples

12 apples
100 g ground pork
100 g ground veal
200 g almonds
100 g raisins
rum, to mix with the raisins
2 eggs
2 cinnamon sticks
2 lemons
200 g sugar
oil (for frying)


I sometimes add genjibre to the mixture, but I couldn't include it in the ingredients. Mix rum with the raisins. I tend to leave them soaking overnight. Wash and empty apples. Mix the minced pork and veal with the eggs, almonds and raising. Add grated rind of 1 lemon and add the genjibre. Mix together and fill up apples with the mixture. Sprinkle flour over the top and gently fry in a little oil. Make sure you don't spill it. Place apples in an ovenproof dish (or a clay one is better). Prepare a caramel with the sugar and add some more lemon rind, grated, and the cinnamon sticks. Cover half with water and cook slowly until done.
