Being September, we have a glut of home grown apples from our garden apple trees at the moment. A friend suggested this recipe for Healing Apples which comes from the post ‘Is this a Perfect Functional Meal for Mucosal Tolerance?’ You can read the full post and all the details here.


Apples are a great source of pectin which feeds beneficial gut bacteria. These stewed apples are lovely for breakfast, dessert or just for a snack and can be frozen after the first stage or will keep in the fridge for around a week.

  • Method :
    1. Peel and core the apples and chop them into small pieces. Sprinkle over the cinnamon and toss to coat thoroughly. 

    2. Put the apples, raisins, sultanas or dates and water into a saucepan and cover. 

    3. Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring regularly. Cook until soft with rough shapes, no longer identifiable as apple slices. The colour should be a russet brown with the cinnamon effect.

    4. The apples may be eaten warm or cold. Store in the fridge or freeze in individual portions.

    5. Before serving add the second stage ingredients.
