1.Place berries in a fine sieve set over a small bowl, cover; thaw in refrigerator overnight.
2.Preheat oven to 160°C/325°F.
3.Core unpeeled apples about three-quarters of the way down from stem end, making hole 4cm (1½ inches) in diameter. Use a small sharp knife to score around centre of each apple. Make a small deep cut in the base of each apple; insert one cardamom pod into each cut.
4.Pack three-quarters of the berries firmly into apples; place apples in a small baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until apples are just tender.
5.Meanwhile, mash remaining berries with a fork in a small bowl; stir in yoghurt and honey.
6.Accompany apples with yoghurt mixture.

Use a good-quality baking apple such as Granny Smith or Sundowner;­ these hold their shape during baking.
