Keeps for: 3+ days (refrigerated, in an airtight container)

Total time (start to finish): approx 70 minutes (40 minutes prepration, 30 minutes baking)


  • 3 medium apples

  • 900ml water
  • 45g carob powder

  1. Wash, core and chop apples into small pieces.

  5. Add water slowly whilst stirring continuously.
  6. Place on hob on a high heat, stirring continuously.
