Gala apples — these heart-shaped apples are sweet and crisp. If you cannot find Gala apples, you may use your favorite apple type.
Cinnamon sticks — I used Mexican cinnamon. Use what you can find, as long as it is NOT in powder form.
Ginger — will add health benefits such as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, to name a few.
Pure maple syrup — will add the perfect natural sweetness. This ingredient is optional.
