Apple compôte is a great way to use up a glut of apples, and makes a delicious breakfast or healthy dessert.
- 100g/3½oz unsalted butter
- 750g/1lb 10oz Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped

Place the butter in a stainless steel saucepan and start to melt.
Add the apples, sugar and vanilla pod.
Cook out the apple to a compote, stirring from time to time for approximately 30 minutes on a moderate heat.
If the texture is too runny then leave to reduce until you have a thick texture.
Remove the vanilla pod, and reserve for use later.
