Make a big bowl of stewed apples and create lots of tasty desserts with it, like apple pie or apple crumble. You could try spooning it over your porridge for an extra portion of fruit to start your day, or serving it with roast pork as a posh apple sauce. Stewed apples can be kept for a week in the fridge.

Add a couple of whole cloves in step one, but remember to remove them before serving!


  • 500g apples, quartered, cored and peeled
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1tbsp water


  1. Slice the apples and place in a medium pan with the sugar and water. Cover the pan and put it on the hob over a medium heat. When it comes to the boil, put the timer on for 5 mins and leave to cook.
  2. Give it a stir after about 4 mins, the apple slices will start to dissolve and become fluffy. Cook for a further 1-2 mins or until the apple is fluffy but a few chunks are still visible. Taste the mixture, adding more sugar if required.
  3. Leave to cool then spoon into a bowl and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
