These stewed winter apples are versatile and delicious. Keep them in the fridge and they’ll prove themselves handy throughout the day – add to porridge or muesli in the morning, spoon over natural yoghurt as a snack or throw them in a fruit crumble with frozen blackberries or stewed rhubarb. Decrease the fuss factor even further by using an apple corer/slicer like this.
You will need
- 5 Granny Smith apples
- 2 tsp cinnamon sugar
- Tbsp water
What you do
Peel, core and chop apples into segments. I use an apple corer from Ikea which sections the apple in 8 segments. Add to a glass dish with the water and stir in the cinnamon sugar.
Place in the microwave with a lid and cook on high for 6 minutes. Give the apples a stir and put back in the microwave for a further 1 -2 minutes depending on how much you want the apple segments to hold their form.
