So deeply satisfying and delicious...make plenty of it!
Ingredients:
  • 6 Apples, peeled, cored, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 C Water or fruit juice such as cherry, cranberry, apple, or pomegranate
  • 1 T Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 T Agave nectar
  • ½ t Ground cinnamon
  • ½ t Vanilla extract
  • ¼ C Toasted walnuts, or unsalted nuts of any kind, if desired
  • Optional: ½ C Dried fruit, such as cherries, raisins, cranberries
Directions:
  1. In a medium saucepan over med-high heat, add chopped apples, water and/or juice, agave nectar, cinnamon, and dried fruits, if using.
  2. Bring to a gentle boil, then, reduce heat to med-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally.
  3. After about 15 minutes, the apples will have softened, the dried fruit has plumped, and the water and/or fruit juice will have concentrated and been lightly absorbed by the apples.
  4. The texture should ultimately be tender but firm, taking into account later reheating.
  5. Serve warm as a dessert, or, over hot cereal or porridge for breakfast.
  6. Garnish with toasted walnuts and serve.
