Apple and Prune Compote

I love compote with Greek yoghurt for breakfast, it has become one of my staples, and whilst this doesn't look the most appetising it is absolutely delicious. I used apples from my Mum's garden and prunes that had been lingering in the cupboard for a while.

Apple and Prune Compote (from River Cottage Light and Easy)
(Serves 4)

3 large or 4 medium cooking apples
125g pitted prunes, halved
1/2 vanilla pod
1 tbsp caster sugar

Peel quarter and core the apples, then slice them into a saucepan. Add the prunes. Split open the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and pod to the pan. Sprinkle over the sugar and add 150ml water.

Put the saucepan over a medium low heat and bring to a simmer. Cook gently for about 20 mins, stirring occasionally until the apples have broken down. Take off the heat and leave to cool. Remove the vanilla pod before serving.
