Baked Apples

This is for when you have sweet cravings .
2 red or yellow apples, cut in half and taken out the heart
2 tea spoons cinnamon powder
1/2 tea spoon fresh grated ginger
1 tea spoon white miso
2 table spoon tahini (sesame paste)
A handfull of soaked raisins. 
Bake the apples on medium fire in a stainless steel pan with covered lid in some sesame oil, after 5 minutes turn them on the other side, once baked enough (a toothprick should still feel some resistance) put the apples on a plate, put the raisins with the soak water in the pan, add all ingredients and cook till it is not too liquid anymore.
Put the sauce on the apples and eventually top with a cashew nut or with some roasted sesame.
In medicine cinnamon acts like other volatile oils and once had a reputation as a cure for colds. It has also been used to treat diarrhea and other problems of the digestive system. Cinnamon is high in antioxidant activity. The essential oil of cinnamon also has antimicrobial properties, which can aid in the preservation of certain foods.
Cinnamon has been reported to have remarkable pharmacological effects in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance.
Ginger, as we all know, is good for the circulation of your body fluids and for digestion.
