  1. Put the apples in a saucepan, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon water, then add the sugar. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes, or until the apples have begun to lose their shape.
  2. Uncover and continue cooking, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture reaches the desired consistency. Taste and add more sugar, if needed. Serve warm or cold with roast pork.
  • When cool, transfer to a plastic freezerproof container, and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost thoroughly before use.
