This roasted apples recipe helps us to make the most of an autumn apple glut.

My mum’s garden has an apple tree which grows a prolific quantity of small apples each autumn. To my brain, these are the true taste of the season – punchy and pink cheeked from the sunshine, and apple-y in a way that the ones from the supermarket just never are. They are eating apples, but also roast really well. Although this might sound criminal, we can’t keep up with the quantity the tree grows! This roasted apples recipe helps us make the most of them, before they sit for too long and go bad. This recipe would work well for roasting any variety of cooking or eating apple you have – just scale it up or down to suit the quantity you have.

We roast apples in slices as it saves the ‘admin’ that comes with stewing them – you still need to core the apples, but no peeling is required. We use a bit of butter, sugar and lemon juice, which this makes a bit of a toffee-esque sauce, and makes the apples sing. Coconut oil also works well instead of butter if that suits your taste. The apples freeze really well once baked, if you don’t want to use them immediately.

These roast apples are great by themselves, or with any pudding accompaniments you fancy. We’ve had them recently with yoghurt, ice cream, custard, and condensed milk. We don’t eat dairy, so the swaps we use are by Alpro, Swedish Glace, Carnation, and Oatly. I’m sure you’ll know your favourites.
