Time to prepare: 15 minutes

Serves 2

Sautéed Cinnamon Apples: Ingredients

1 large Bramley apple

3 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional: 2 tablespoons raisins/cranberries

Sautéed Cinnamon Apples: Method

  1. Cut apple into bite-sized chunks and add to a saucepan with 3 tablespoons water. Put the lid on the pan and cook on a medium heat until the water has been absorbed (about 5 minutes), stirring occasionally.

  2. Add all remaining ingredients and stir until all the apple pieces are coated in the spices. Turn down the heat to low, put the lid back on and simmer for a further 7 – 10 minutes, stirring every minute or so.

  3. 2 minutes before the end, add in the raisins/cranberries if using. Serve warm.

Whilst raw fruit can be difficult to digest for those with gut issues, cooked fruit has proven to be much more easily tolerated, and if fibre is a problem for you then feel free to peel the apple skin first.
