Apple & Pear Compote
Serves: 8
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped (you can use either cooking apples for a smoother/glossier finish or 2 normal eating apples work well too)
  • 2-3 pears, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 30g raisins (optional)
  • a glug (approx 100ml) apple juice or water
  1. Simply place your apple and pear, with a little apple juice or water, into a small saucepan and allow to simmer gently together in the pan on a low heat for approximately 15-20 minutes until the fruit has softened.
  2. Then add the honey and raisins and stir through.
  3. Taste and add a touch more honey, if needed. Enjoy hot or cold.
This keeps well in an air tight container for up to a week. You can also freeze it into individual portions (I use silicone muffin cases) and have to hand for whenever sore tummies are around.
