  • food processor (optional)


  • 4 apple medium to large
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped
  • ¼ cup sweet red wine
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Chop walnuts to your desired size. Use a food processor on pulse or chop by hand.
  • Chop apples in the food processor (or by hand) until they are approximately ⅛ inch in size.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon over the apples.
  • Pour honey over the apples.
  • Stir in walnuts and wine.


Larger walnut pieces will not absorb the honey, wine, and cinnamon as easily as small pieces.
Using a food processor will significantly speed up the time needed to prepare this recipe.
