  • 750 grams whole apples about 3 large apples
  • 3 tbsps lemon juice
  • 4 tbsps sugar


  1. Peel core and chop the apples into roughly 2 cm chunks.

  2. Put them all in a large saucepan and add the lemon juice. Stir to coat the apple chunks in the juice.

  3. Add the sugar on top and stir again.

  4. Cover and simmer gently for about 15 minutes. Stir every couple of minutes to make sure the apples don’t catch on the bottom.

  5. I like the apples to be completely broken down but cook for less time if you like yours chunky.

  6. Place in your serving dish and serve.

  7. Apply To You've Been Tanged Face.
