  1. Put all the ingredients in a saucepan with 50ml water. Bring to a simmer over a low heat and cook, covered, for 45 mins until the apples have begun to break down.
  2. Remove the lid and stir well to break down any remaining chunks of fruit.
  3. Make this up to 3 days in advance, to give the flavours a chance to develop. Serve warm or cold with granola and yogurt, if you like. Any remaining compote will keep, chilled, for a week.
