How to stew apples?

To stew an apple you must soften it in a pan of boiling water over a stove. Slice it up, place it in the water with a heap of caster sugar and once it has reached boiling point leave for five minutes. Stir and boil for another two minutes then your stewed apples should be ready to enjoy.

Are apple seeds poisonous?

The seeds of an apple do contain small amounts of cyanide which, when over-consumed, is poisonous to humans. Whilst this is usual not enough to do harm, some experts advise staying away from apple seeds and removing the core of your apples before eating.

How to make apple sauce?

Following the same steps as you would to stew your apples, once cooled remove the stewed apple mixture from the pan and place into a food processor. Process the apples until they reach the correct consistency of apple sauce and then serve on the side of pork, glazed ham or a recipe of your choice.
