To stew apples

  1. Peel, core and roughly chop apples. Place in saucepan with a little water (3 tablespoons approx) and place over a low heat, stirring occasionally until apples are softened. When apples are soft, if liked, add a pinch of cinnamon at this stage.

    Recipe Notes:

    Apples can also be stewed in a microwave. Place apples and water in a deep microwaveable bowl and cook on HIGH for approx 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
