This spread is made without added sugar, and can be used instead of jam on
toast. Kids love it.
2 large dessert apples, peeled and chopped
4oz (110g) chopped dates
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Place the apples & cinnamon in a pan with the dates, add 6 fl oz (175ml)
Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the apples are soft.
For a stiffer mixture take the lid off for the last 5 minutes of cooking to
reduce some of the liquid.
Mash with a fork or potato masher, cool and store in a glass container and
