Stewed apples are tasty and versatile – have them on their own with yoghurt or ice-cream, add them to porridge or make apple pie. Mmm pie!
It is super easy to stew apples and by making them yourself you can avoid all the unnecessary added sugar.
There is an apple stall at my local farmers market and in the far corner of the stall are the cheap juicing apples. These are perfect for stewing and cheap!
Start by dicing the apples and discarding the core. I don’t remove the skin, but you can if you want to. As you go put the apples in a saucepan.
Ingredients: apples and cinnamon (and/or mixed spice, nutmeg, cloves, etc)
Equipment: chopping board, knife, saucepan
- Dice the apples, putting the flesh in the saucepan and discarding the core
- In the saucepan, stew the apples with cinnamon and 1 cup of water until the apples are cooked and the liquid has evaporated. (the amount of water and the time you need to cook the apples will vary on the quantity you are making).
