  • 6 large apples
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) maple syrup
  • ½ tablespoon (7.5 ml) ground cinnamon
  • ½ tablespoon (7.5 ml) ground cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • a dash of salt


Peel, core and chop the apples into 2-inch (5.08 cm) chunks.

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine the apples, maple syrup, cinnamon and lemon juice. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the apples have softened up. Uncover the pot and continue cooking, stirring occasionally to break up the larger pieces, for about 5 to 10 minutes. Apples should be soft but have some consistency to them.

Remove from heat, and adjust maple syrup, cinnamon or lemon juice, to taste. Serve warm or chilled. Let cool to room temperature before storing it in the fridge.
