This easy little recipe makes a great start to the day.
4 apples, peeled, quartered and cored
1 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons honey
1 orange, juice and zest low fat yogurt and Kahkow granola to serve optional
1/2 quantity Kahkow chocolate sauce – separate recipe
Place the apples into a small saucepan and add enough water to barely cover. Add the star anise, cinnamon stick, cloves, vanilla extract and honey, then stir in the orange zest and juice, and bring to a boil.
Cover, then reduce the heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes or until the apples are tender. Remove the apples from the saucepan and place into a bowl. Bring the liquid to a boil, and then simmer gentle for at least 10 minutes until reduced and syrupy. Strain into the bowl with the apples discarding the spices, then leave to cool.
Cover, and then chill in the fridge for at least 6 hours or preferably overnight.
To serve, spoon the fruit compote with some of the syrup into serving bowls or glass jars, top with layers of yogurt and chocolate sauce, then sprinkle with some granola.
