Apple Walnut Surprise.

This is a great snack. The first time I made this, I did it exactly as the recipe calls for - with the raisins. The kids weren't a fan. Tried again - sans raisins - and sans day-ahead prep time, and they love it! After I make it, I keep them in little rubbermaid containers so they can grab one for a snack. Perfect!

1 cup raisins or currents
1/2 cup water
8-10 apples, peeled and cored
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
4 heaping tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 1/2 heaping tablespoons ground cinnamon

Soak raisins or currents in the water in a container with a closed top overnight in the refrigerator to soften.

Next day: pour off the water into a pot with a tight lid and add the peeled and cored apples. Let simmer over a low flam for 7 minutes. Pour the apples and the little liquid that remains off into a chopping bowl or hand chopper and dice up the softened apples into small pieces.

Mix the apples, raisins, walnuts, flax seeds, and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well. Store in refrigerator to serve for meals and snacks.
