2 tbsp water
grated zest of orange or lemon
handful of raisins, chopped dried
apricots or cranberries
1 tsp cinnamon or ginger

- First, decide if you’re making plain apple sauce, or a flavoured compôte. For the latter, choose your ingredient now!
- Place the sliced Bramley apples, sugar, water and your chosen optional ingredient(s) in large pan with a tight fitting lid, then place over a gentle heat and slowly bring to the boil.
- Stir, then cover and simmer for five minutes or until the Bramley slices have become fluffy and started to dissolve. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
