I have an abundance of cooking apples in my garden at the moment, our apple tree is blooming and producing a vast amount of fruit – which is great. I have always wanted an apple tree. We also have a blackberry bush and a plum tree (they are not ripe yet though).
To accompany an apple tart and vanilla ice cream I thought a nice way to use up the apples would be to make this compote as a side on the dessert and it went really well. I love apples and I love desserts like this, so I went to town and apples were coming out of our ears – but it was lush.
