* If you would like to prepare fresh apples for this dish you can! Its better 🙂

Peel and core about 8 – 10 apples and slice them into wedges. Place in a pot and pour just enough water in to cover the base, don’t cover the apples. Add in 2 or 3 cloves (optional) and about 2 cinnamon sticks and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and bring to a gentle simmer until the apples are soft.
