Recipe Apple Compote


  • 2 cups diced apple peeled and cores removed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice the juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2-3 tablespoons water if needed


  • Add the apple, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a medium saucepan set over medium heat.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are fork tender– about 15 minutes. If the mixture begins to scorch on the bottom, turn the heat to low and add a few tablespoons of water. We don’t want to burn the apples!
  • When the apples are your desired doneness, remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container.
