Stewed Apples

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!

01 applesThe quantity of apples you stew is entirely up to you. I like to do a few kilograms at a time.

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.

02 diceSprinkle the apples with cinnamon, nutmeg and mixed spice (or whatever spices you have on hand) and add one cup of water. Bring the apples to the boil, then simmer and reduce.
