  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Core apples; peel a strip from the top of each. If necessary cut thin slice from bottom of each apple so apple will stand upright. Place apples upright in greased 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Fill centers with fruit bits or raisins.
  3. In medium-size bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, water and nutmeg; pour over and around apples.
  4. Set dish in a 13 x 9-inch pan. Set on oven rack. Carefully pour boiling water into pan to 1-inch depth.
  5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender, occasionally spooning sweetened condensed milk mixture in bottom of dish over apples.
  6. Serve warm.
