When it comes to cooking apples, usually we think of recipes like apple pie, apple crisp, or apple sauce.

Stewed apples are a food that most people never get around to making, which is sad, because they are missing out on one of the yummiest ways to eat apples.

Pears work equally well in this stewed fruit recipe, and we always add dried fruit, like prunes, figs or apricots, for extra sweetness and flavor. The combination is scrumptious, and of course, promotes regularity!

Cooking Tips: Use a sweet apple, like Golden Delicious or Gala, or a sweet crisp pear like Bosc or Anjou. Cloves are essential, but don't worry if you don't have or can't find cinnamon stick or cardamom pods.
