A delicious compote that is heavenly in the caramel apple cupcakes I make, as well as a topping for ice cream, in place of jam, or perhaps paired with a pork roast? Any way you use it, it's sure to please!

  • Slowly stir maple syrup, water, brown sugar, raisins, and cinnamon into the apples. Reduce heat and simmer until a thick syrup forms, about 15 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and let stand for several minutes to thicken. Serve hot, or refrigerate and serve cold.

Cook's Notes:

A mix of Fuji and Golden Delicious apples gives the best results. When choosing 2 types of apples, make sure one type is crisp and one is soft, as they create a better texture.

If using unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt.
