  2. Place in each cavity some shelled walnuts, raisins and grated lemon zest (or freshly grated ginger). Sprinkle each apple with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and add a teaspoon of honey. Close your apples with the part that you have cut before. Place the fruit in a heatproof bowl and place in the steamer or use the alternative steaming cooking method. Steam for 20 - 25 minutes.
