Ingredients

10 apples   1.8 kg
1 1/2 cup water, approximately   375 mL
1/3 cup sugar [optional]   70 g

Before you start

A food mill will be very useful to purée the apples, without having to peel them first.

Method

  1. Cut the apples into quarters without peeling them. Put them in a saucepan.
  2. Pour about 1-2 cm of water in the bottom of the saucepan and add sugar (optional). Cover and cook over low heat about 10 min, until the apples are softened completely.
  3. Purée the apples using a food mill. Let the purée cool down and serve cold or at room temperature.

Remarks

The compote keeps up to 10 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.
