How many of you made a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier this year? Well here is a Polish Apple Compote which is simple to prepare and pure as nature herself.
4 cups water
0,5 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
8 semi-sweet apples (Gala or Fuji are great)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 eggwhites, 1 sachet vanilla sugar
Bring the water to a boil, add one cup of sugar and stir to dissolve; add the cinnamon and lemon zest; add the apples. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the apples are just soft. Stir in the lemon juice. Taste for sweetness. The syrup should be refreshing and not cloyingly sweet. You should clearly taste the cinnamon as well as a bit of lemon. Add or don’t add more sugar depending on your taste.
Beet the egg white with the vanilla sugar till you have a nice peak of the iceberg.
Serve together, bob is your uncle…
