Peel and remove the cores, without breaking the apples.
Place in a well-buttered, fireproof dish, which takes the apples without placing them on top of one another.
Stuff the apples with strawberry jam and cover with castor sugar.
Place a dab of butter on top, cover and cook gently until the butter and sugar forms a syrup.
Baste well with the syrup, baste every 10 minutes until the apples are tender.
Uncover and brown slightly.
Serve with a dab of strawberry jam on each and a pint of hot custard.
