Chefs tips
  • To stew the apples: Peel core and chop them then add to a pan with 2 tbsp water. Cover and cook over a gentle heat stirring regularly for 10-15 mins.
  • Stewed apples freeze well, so you could make a batch and freeze until needed.
  • Freezing instructions: Defrost 2 hours to  serve, or defrost in the microwave or an oven at a moderate heat.
