Fall Apple Compote

As it’s fall, I want all things apple. This morning, that meant french toast with apple topping and this compote couldn’t be easier.

Dice 2 large apples (I picked fuji) into one inch pieces. You can peel the apples if you want to but I decided to leave them on for today.IMG_4859.JPG

Combine the apples with 1/4 c white sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. fresh ground nutmeg. Mix and let sit for about 5 minutes to let the juices start coming out.IMG_4860.JPG

Place the apple mixture in a medium sauce pan over medium low heat. We want to cook them slowly so they can cook in their own juices. Cook them until they start getting a little soft but still have some tooth to them. We don’t want mush, just nice cooked apples. This took about 12 minutes for me.

Remove them from the heat and let them cool. Use them to top all kinds of things.IMG_4861.JPG
