       6    Golden Delicious apples,
            -peeled, cored, and
            -coarsely chopped
     3/4 c  Granulated sugar
       1 t  Powdered cinnamon
     1/2 t  Powdered nutmeg
     1/4 t  Powdered cloves
       1 c  Heavy cream
       5    Eggs
   From the Washington Apple Commission.
   1. Cook apples over low heat in a large saucepan with 1/4 cup sugar
   and 1/4 cup water for about 15 minutes or until soft.
   2. Meanwhile, heat remaining sugar over medium heat in another
   saucepan with 3 tablespoons water, plus cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
   Stir constantly as sugar caramelizes, and when it has turned very
   dark brown, pour it immediately into a 2-quart mold, quickly turning
   the mold from side to side to coat all interior surfaces with the
   sugar. Set aside to cool.
   3. Scald the cream by bringing it to a quick boil, then removing
   immediately from heat and setting aside to cool.
   4. Preheat oven to 350'F.
   5. When apples are cooked, puree them in a blender or food processor.
   Beat the eggs, then slowly add scalded cream, stirring constantly.
   Strain egg mixture into large bowl and add pureed apples. Mix
   together well, then pour apples into mold.
   6. Place mold in a large pan of room-temperature water, then place in
   oven and bake for about 1-1/2 hours, or until a knife inserted into
   middle of flan comes out clean.
   7. Cool to room temperature before serving, then dip mold into warm
   water to melt glaze slightly and unmold onto serving platter. May be
   served with whipped cream, fresh strawberries or other fruit.
