Apple Compote

  • 2 Large cooking apples (I used a brambley and a granny smith)
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 25 grams/ 1oz Caster sugar(you can add more if your apples need it)
  • 25 grams/ 1oz Butter
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

Peel and core apples, dice the apple into pieces are small even pieces and add to a frying pan (or saucepan)

Add water, sugar and lemon juice to the apples, cook slowly on a low- medium heat until apples are soft and tender (approximately 5 - 10 minutes)
Dice butter and add to apples stir until mixed
You can further flavour with vanilla or cinnamon to taste
Remove from heat and blend briefly to obtain desired consistency or longer for a smoother consistency.

I used a potato masher to blend my apples as I wanted to keep a little texture, you could also use a ricer.
Leave to cool and transfer to a jar or other container.Keep in the fridge, in sealed container.
