Spiced Apples

The other night I made a French toast dinner. Besides French toast, we had eggs, bacon, herb potatoes and these spicy apples. This was sort of a cross between baked apples and chunky applesauce, and made a nice complement to the meal.  The apples are cooked to a soft texture, with a small amount of raw sugar. I cooked one apple for each of us, and we had a small amount of leftover, which reheated nicely in a ramekin in the toaster oven.

2 large apples (peeled & chopped)
¼ tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cardamom
1/8 tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cloves
2 Tbsp raw sugar
2 Tbsp filtered water
1 Tbsp butter

Mix the chopped apples, spices and sugar in a small pot with a lid. Add app. 2 Tbsp of water and a 1 Tbsp pat of butter. Cook on low-medium heat with the lid on, stirring frequently, until the apples are soft and infused with the spices. This can be cooked ahead and reheated.
