  • 1 Green Apple or a tart apple
  • cinnamon to taste 1-2 tsp
  • optional: pinch of salt
  • 1/4 or more of water
  • 1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • butter 1 tablespoons


Wash and cut apples into bite sized pieces.

Add apples, cinnamon, a pinch of salt, water, to a pan.

Turn to medium heat to get the mixture to start steaming and add lid.

Cook 5-8 minutes till apples are softened. You might need to add a couple more tablespoons of water to keep it from burning.

Turn heat down, add syrup and butter. Stir it in to coat the apples. Cook 1-2 more minutes.

Serve over pancakes or oatmeal, or eat the apples on their own. Store in the refrigerator.
