Foodie Friday: These cool autumn days are the perfect time to snuggle up with a bowl of spiced stewed apples. This is super simple to make and is delicious served warm or cold. I love having it for breakfast with coconut yogurt, berries and seeds.
500g cooking apples (or other tart, sharp apples)
1 tbsp brown sugar (optional)
1/2 – 1 cup water
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground clove
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
- Peel and chop the apples into little pieces and pop into a heavy bottomed pot on a medium high heat.
- Add brown sugar and spices, stir well to combine and put the lid on the pot. The steam will help the apples cook faster, but stir every few minutes to make sure it doesn’t stick to the base. It should only take about 15 minutes for this to stew down.
- Add the water (more or less depending on how dry or loose your stewed apple is) and
- Taste and add more sugar if necessary. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
