Cardamon spiced apple compote

500g of  washed, chopped apples (I dont peel mine)
4 tbsp water
2 tsp spices – cardamon, cinnamon or ginger work well

Place your fruit into a heavy bottomed pan
Add the water
Cook the fruit over a low to medium heat with the lid on for approx 20 minutes
Once the fruit has softened, remove the lid and cook until the liquid reduces
If you want a super smooth consistency then allow to cool before placing the compote into a blender for 2 minutes
