  • Serves: 8

  • Any type of apple may be used, baking or sweet, or a mixture of types.
  • Cooked apple dishes are a good use for substandard apples, e.g. damaged, wrinkled etc.
  • Crisps can be made with most any sort of fruit. Pineapple is a good choice.
  • Some fruits, especially peaches, go better in a cobbler.
  • Raisins can be added to the apples at the beginning, and ½ teaspoon of powdered ginger, or a sprinkling of nutmeg can also be put in.
  • 'Mixed spice' (cinnamon, coriander, clove and other spices) is a perfect addition to apple dishes. This is more popular in Britain than the US.
