  • 2/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • Preparation

    Baking Directions:

    Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag.

    Add apple slices; seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 to 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

    Prepare grill.

    Remove apple from bag, reserving marinade.

    Place apple slices on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side, turning and basting frequently with reserved marinade.

    Serving Directions:

    Serve these highly flavored apple rings as a side with pork or chicken.

    We liked this recipe with Granny Smiths.

    For a dessert version, use Pink Lady apples, and serve with low-fat ice cream.
