  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine lentils, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and cloves. Stir well.
  3. Using a paring knife or apple corer, remove the core of each apple to create a well about 3/ 4 inch (2 cm) wide, leaving about 1/ 2 inch (1 cm) on the bottom of each apple intact.
  4. Stuff each apple generously with the lentil and brown sugar mixture.
  5. Arrange apples in an 8x8 inch (20x20 cm) baking dish and top each apple with 1 tsp (5 mL) of butter. Pour the water into the bottom of the dish, lightly cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the foil and bake for another 20-30 minutes, until the apples are soft and the skins a bit wrinkly.
  7. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
