Method

  1. Peel, core and chop the apple into 1cm cubes.
  2. Place a pan on a medium heat with the butter, cinnamon and bay (if using). Cook for just 30 to 40 seconds, or until the cinnamon starts to catch and burn – this will bring out all those lovely, toasty flavours.
  3. Stir in the apple and a swig of water, shake well to coat in the butter and leave to soften for a couple of minutes.
  4. Pour in the cranberry sauce and warm through, letting all the flavours mingle, then pour into a bowl and serve.
