Recipe

Served hot, warm, or cold, this is the simplest of desserts. Good with ice cream, cream, or evaporated milk instead of the whipped cream.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cooking time: 35–40 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2½ lb (1.2kg) Cortland or Jonathan apples
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream

Directions

1. Reserve half an apple for garnish. Peel, core, and thinly slice the remaining apples. Place the slices in a saucepan and sprinkle with the lemon juice as they are cut.

2. Add the apple juice and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the liquid comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, about 35 minutes, or until the apples are reduced to a sauce.

3. Let cool slightly. Rub through a sieve to make a smooth purèe.

4. Divide the purèe among four glasses. Top with the cream. Thinly slice the remaining apple and garnish the compotes with the apple slices. Serve warm or chilled.

Notes

Leftovers can be served alongside pork chops, or eaten as a snack.

Prepare ahead: The compote can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Nutritional Benefits: Low fat.
