stewed apple

Stewed apple is a staple in our home, happily in as we head towards winter there are huge gluts of apples. I use stewed apple in many recipes - pancakes, porridges, turnovers, crumbles... but it is delicious as is with a sprinkling of home-made granola over the top. YUM! 


  • 3 huge brambly apples
  • 1 tsp (heaped) ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbs soft brown sugar
  • hot water


  1. Boil a kettle, peel* & core your apples then chop them into big chunks (small ones turn to mush)

  2. Into a large saucepan (it needs a lid & some space between the apples & the top of the pan) add: chunks of apple, ground cinnamon, muscovado sugar, boiling water to cover just over half the apple chunks then get the lid on & leave to boil/steam for 10-12 minutes (dependant on size).

  3. Drain if there is any excess water then allow to cool before putting in boxes for the fridge. In the mean time have a bowl whilst it's still warm with the accompaniment of your choice - I chose my homemade gluten-free granola.


*peelings can be used to make yummy crisps so don't bin them!
