Sous Vide Poached Apples

Anova Culinary

Sous Vide Poached Apples are a wonderful alternative to apple pie. This easy recipe features all the same flavors — vanilla, cinnamon, and even clove, and, like pie, should be served with your favorite ice cream.

Prep Time: 00:15

Recipe Time: 01:00

Temperature : 175F / 79.4C



  1. Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 175°F (79°C).
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the moist setting. Place in the water bath and set the timer for 1 hour.

Finishing Steps

  1. When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Carefully remove the apples from the bag and transfer to a plate.
  2. Strain the cooking liquid into a large saucepan. Bring the liquid to a rapid simmer over medium heat. Continue to simmer until the liquid can coat the bag of a spoon, about 10 minutes.
  3. Cut the apples in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Divide between 4 serving plates.
  4. Serve apples topped with ice cream and the reduced sauce. A little caramel sauce doesn’t hurt, either.
