This is a great way to save your old Apples that have turned wrinkly and spongy. Of course, you can cook fresh ones. Since I started cooking Broccoli in the pan-steam-frying method, I am cooking many things in the same way. The frying pan method works for savoury Vegetables, why not for sweet Fruit?


2 Apples *Not-so-great Apples are perfectly suitable!
1/2 cup Water *plus extra if requied
1 tablespoon Sugar *optional

  1. Wash Apples, remove the core and cut into wedges. Today I cut each Apple into 12 wedges. Arrange them in a non-stick frying pan in a single layer, so that you won’t need to stir or toss them.
  2. Add Water, sprinkle with Sugar (if you add it), cover with a lid, and cook over medium low heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until water is gone. If Apple is not soft enough, add extra Water and cook for extra minutes. *Note: Some Apples get soft very quickly. You need to add less Water.
  3. After Water is gone, you can keep cooking until Apple is slightly caramelised if you prefer. Enjoy the pan-stewed Apple with Cream, Ice Cream OR Custard. You can add it to Cereal, Porridge, etc.
