- To make apples more exciting

I’ve always found apple a bit boring… I’ve tried different ways to eat them.

In winter I always have to push myself to eat fruit because apart from the usual banana, orange and pear, there’s nothing very exciting. 

I found a recipe called ‘March jam’.
The name doesn’t really matter as, as you know me,  I changed the recipe anyway, and instead of making a jam we are going to make a compote. Why a compote ? Because we can 🙂

A compote, just because, it’s gonna push me to eat more apple everyday and because I don’t have any jam jars where I’m staying now and want to avoid the hassle of buying and sterilized jars. (it’s not a hassle really, I am just finding excuses).

The exciting apples
