1/1 Photo of Tfah - a Moroccan Apple Dessert
As a low-fat chef I am always looking for desserts which are interesting and flavorful without lots of butter. :) Here tart apples are candied in a syrup scented with cinnamon and orange blossom water, two flavors typical of North African cuisine. I have not tried this one but it looks scrumptious. (T'fah is the Arabic word for apple.)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Begin by removing the yellow part of the lemon peel from the lemons and cutting it into small strips.
- 2Juice the lemons and reserve 1/2 cup for later use.
- 3Peel and core apples, cutting into 8 - 10 wedges depending on the size of your apples.
- 4Place sugar, water, and cinnamon in a large saucepan and bring to a low boil.
- 5Once the mixture boils, add the apples, lemon rind, lemon juice and orange blossom water to the pot. (I find orange blossom water to be quite potent and would start with the lower amount and add more to suit personal taste.)
- 6Cook until the mixture is dry and the apples and lemon rind are tender.
- 7Remove from heat and allow the dessert to cool.
- 8Serve at room temperature.
