  • 6 apples
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or more to taste
  • Splash of water


  • Peel your apples and chop up into chunks.
  • Place in a saucepan with 1 teaspoon lemon juice* and mix.
  • Add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, a tablespoon of maple syrup and a splash of cold water.** Stir well
  • Heat over a medium heat for a few minutes, stirring often. Then reduce to heat to low and cover your saucepan with a lid.
  • Continue cooking for a further 10 or minutes until soft, stirring occasionally to stop it sticking.
  • If you prefer your apples to be completely broken down continue cooking for another ten-fifteen minutes, stirring often.
