3 apples, peeled, cored and chopped (see tip)
2-4 tbsp caster or light brown soft sugar (depending on the sweetness of the apples)
1 tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Put the apples, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon in a small pan with 1 tbsp water. Cover and cook over a medium heat for 5-10 mins, or until the apples are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife.
If you prefer a smoother mixture, continue to cook for a further 5 mins, uncovered, stirring frequently to break down the apples into a compote.
