  • 3 Granny Smith, Fuji or Gala apples
  • Water
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger root
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup orange juice or ginger ale
  • 1/2 teaspoon 5-spice powder or garam masala*
  • 2 tablespoons chopped nuts


  1. To make apples: Leave peels on apples. Remove cores with a small apple corer or melon baller. Cut apples into 1/2-inch-thick rings. Fill a nonreactive medium bowl with 2 cups water and squeeze lemon into it. Place apple slices into acidified water while you make marinade.
  2. To make marinade: Combine maple syrup, ginger root, lemon juice, orange juice and spice powder in a nonreactive medium bowl. Drain apples and place in marinade 20 minutes while you heat grill. Grill apple slices over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden while basting with marinade. Pour any remaining marinade over apples and serve sprinkled with chopped nuts.
