There were 3 apples left languishing in the fruit bowl, now I don't mind apples to eat, crunchy and delicious, but add butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, now you are talking my language. So with cinnamon apple-y goodness on the brain I made Caramelised Apples for dessert. You know when a food combination is just right when you can already taste how it will taste before you have cooked it!
|Ingredients for Caramelised Apples with Cinnamon|
|Peel and cut up apples into chunks|
|Melt butter in a heavy based saucepan|
|Once butter has started to melt, add brown sugar and cinnamon|
|Stir on medium heat until it starts to bubble|
|Add apples, put on a lid and turn heat down to lowest setting for 30 minutes|
|Take off lid, increase heat to medium and let liquid reduce and thicken, a little|
|You still want plenty of caramel so don't let it reduce too much|
|Cinnamon-y Caramel-y goodness|
|Serve warm with best vanilla icecream. Delish|
3 to 4 left behind-apples, any variety. I know some apples are better for cooking but I am aiming to use up apples that may not have been eaten in their prime
50 grams butter
75 grams brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

The scent in you kitchen will have everyone asking "Whats for Dessert"
So, over to you, how do you use up fruit that is past its prime?
