Stewed Fruit

Denise and I shared a caravan 'penthouse' when Studio 10 headed off on a road trip in Queensland.

I always learn a lot from Ding Dong, and over the past week that has included discovering what goes into a Japanese slipper cocktail! Cheerfully she told me if you have too many you feel like a busted thong!

Another lesson, how easy it is to make stewed fruit. Not wanting to throw out our oldish apples, Denise wanted to stew them up. We also used up our left over juice and sachets of sugar. The finished product- delish with yoghurt, muesli for brekkie, or ice cream for dessert.

Ingredients: Three apples, three satchets of sugar, dollop of leftover juice. (you could use any fruit, brown sugar instead of juice, you could also squeeze some fresh juice from oranges)

 Sugar sachets from the caravan, you could also use brown sugar.

Method: Peel and slice fruit. Put in a saucepan, sprinkle sugar over the top, and then pour some fruit juice over the top (so it just covers the sliced fruit) Make sure your hotplate is on a low heat (something that I MUST remember) and gently stir. Once the fruit has softened it's ready!

 Use any juice you like to sweeten your fruit.

Success rate: Two of us were in the caravan and I ate all of the stewed fruit!!
