Stewed apples

Almost any fruit can be blended into a purée – these can also be used as sauces for ice-cream. This is a great way of getting extra fibre and some dried fruits are a source of iron. Keep drinking enough to stay hydrated and prevent constipation.

  • Method
    1. Use a cooking apple that’s full of flavour, such as Bramley. Peel, core and chop the apple.
    2. Place into a pan with just a splash of water and sugar to taste. Add a few sultanas and a little cinnamon if wished.
    3. Simmer until the apple has softened, then blend until smooth.
