Peel the apples if desired. The peel contains fibre, minerals, and other nutrients so it's best nutritionally not to peel.
Core the apples and chop them into small evenly sized pieces.
Add the water and butter to the sauce pan and heat until the butter has just melted
Add the remaining ingredients to the pan, cover, and cook on a low heat for about 10 -15 minutes, stirring regularly.
Add more water if the pan becomes dry and the apples risk burning.
Cook until soft with rough shapes, no longer identifiable as apple slices. The colour should be a russet brown with the cinnamon effect.
Add any extra probiotic powders once the apples have been taken off the heat (so as not to damage the probiotics).
Eat warm or cold. Delicious with yoghurt and cinnamon.
