- 4 cooking apples peeled cored and roughly chopped
- Splash of Lemon juice
- Splash of Maple syrup optional
- Pinch of cinnamon or allspice
- Place the roughly chopped apples into a saucepan with enough water to just cover them. Simmer gently stirring occasionally until the apples reduce and become mushy. Add cinnamon or mixed spice, a splash of lemon juice (and maple syrup if using). Mash with a fork or pop into a blender for a smoother consistency. Spoon into sterilised jars if you're not going to eat it all straightaway!
