Apple, Strawberry & Cinnamon Compote

Apple, Strawberry & Cinnamon Compote

I never add sugar to my fruit compote. Who needs it. Savour the flavours and natural sweetness of fruit. It’s so easy to prepare this healthier alternative to sugar. Antioxidants, vitamin C and added dietary fibre by keeping the skin on. Perfect. This Apple & Strawberry Compote works as a topping for porridge or as dessert alongside natural yoghurt, topped with roasted almonds and a little fresh mint. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 800g Royal Gala (or any red apple - kanzi, fuji etc) cut into 2cm chunks (leave skin on)
  • 1 punnet washed strawberries cut into quarters 
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange
  • Zest of 1/2 an orange 
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 60ml water

METHOD

  1. Place juice, zest, water & cinnamon quill in a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  2. Add chopped apples and strawberries, mix to coat then cover with baking paper.
  3. Place lid on and cook for about 20mins over low heat until soft. The juices will thicken to a thin syrup.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
