Fragrant Apple Ambrosia

 

Ingredients

2-3 medium sized apples, chopped

1/3 cup water

3 black peppercorns

2 cloves crushed

1/2 tbsp chopped ginger

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp golden raisins

Method

Add chopped apples, peppercorns, cloves, ginger and water to a saucepan and cook on medium high heat for 5 min. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar and cook on low for 25 min or until apple mixture begins to soften.

Serves 3-4. Sprinkle a little more cinnamon if you like before serving.

Enjoy this savory, wholesome recipe – a warm accompaniment to those cool mornings in fall and winter. In ayurveda, cooked apples are tridoshic, meaning they balance all the 3 doshas – vata, pitta and kapha.
