This recipe is impressive when served at a dinner party or celebration but simple enough to make anytime.
1 cup sweet white wine
1/4 cup raisins
2 Tbsp sugar
1 pint green gooseberries, topped, and tailed
2 cups yellow delicious apples, quartered, cored, peeled, and cut into ΒΌ inch slices
1 tsp cornstarch
4 Tbsp low-fat whipped cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp powdered butter substitute
Dash of nutmeg
1 Combine wine, raisins, and sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add gooseberries; poach until just barely tender, about 5 to 8 minutes.
2 Do not let syrup bubble or berries may burst. Transfer fruit gently with a slotted spoon to a serving dish.
3 Add apples to syrup and poach until gently tender, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Do not over cook, or the apples will be mushy.
4 Transfer apples with slotted spoon to serving dish. Stir cornstarch in to syrup and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour over fruit, let cool, and serve with whipped cream.
