Do you make pie every holiday and dream of yummy fillings? Well here is a really yummy and easy apple compote that is great for pie, pockets, pancakes or even with ice cream!

Ingredients:
6 apples (granny smith)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon rum (optional)

to make:

Wash, peel, and core the apples. Granny Smith hold up the best while cooking and have a lot of flavor.

Cut the pieces into cubes as even as you can make them.

Put all ingredients into a sauce pan and cover with a parchment circle or wax paper with a hole in the center.

Let simmer until the apples begin to steam and then remove paper and stir.

Stir occasionally so the pieces cook evenly and don’t turn to applesauce.

When they are golden brown and slide easily off a fork, the apples are done!!

Put directly into a pie shell and bake, or cool in the fridge and save for a Rainy day! Yummy!

Enjoy!
