Applemeringue - 4 persons


6 Apples
3 tablespoonful of sugar
The whites of 3 eggs
1 decilitre sugar
If you wish some picked almonds

Peel and cut out the pip of the apples. Then cut them into thin slices. Put them on a greased oven-safe plate. Scatter 3 tablespoonful of sugar over the apples. Cover with foil and bake in the oven (200 degrees Celsius) for 15-20 minutes. Whip the whites of the 3 eggs into a hard foam. Carefully stir down the decilitre of sugar. Pour it all over the apples (and scatter the almonds over). Bake in the oven (175-200 degrees Celsius) until the meringue has turned to light-yellow.

Fruit Sorbet

Here's a Crohn's-friendly recipe for just about anybody with the disease from Rebecca.

Any canned fruit in HEAVY SYRUP (water or light syrup will not work) honey

Put the cans of fruit in the freezer for about 3 days (2 for smaller cans; I use 20 oz. cans of peaches). Put fruit in a blender or food processor with honey to taste (I add 2 tablespoons to the 20 oz. can) and blend till smooth. Place mixture in freezer-safe container and refreeze till hardened.

You can make a nice pina colada sorbet by using pineapple instead plus a little coconut milk (if you can tolerate coconut) with the honey.

This dessert is light and fat-free and, above all, it's sweet. I absolutely craved sweets when I was first diagnosed but couldn't have chocolate, nuts, or even dairy. So this recipe saved me from many cravings.
