Stewed Fruit Recipe
This is one of my favorite recipes this wonderful fall/winter season. Its warming, moist, grounding, and easy to digest!!!
*It is important to reduce vata qualities such as dry, cold, light, mobile that might manifest this season as cracking and pain in joints, feeling not grounded, feeling cold, digestive upset such as gas and bloating, etc) in the vata season.
I have also been cooking this for my Postpartum mommies when doing Ayurvedic Doula care ( a very iron rich food), and sharing this recipe with my clients as a yummy snack, or something to have for breakfast with oatmeal. Easy to make too!!!
Here it is:
Serves 2-3 bowls
*2 apples ( you can use also pears or mix both if you like)
*1/3 cup of water
*8 pieces of clove
*stick of cinnamon
*1 1/2 tablespoon of sucanat ( iron rich) or maple syrup
*1/3 cup of dried apricots or prunes. Dates are good too.
*1 tbs of ghee
* You can cook over the fire, or slow cook in a crock pot. Mix all the ingredients over medium heat until it boils and then keep on low until apples are completely cooked. The longer you let it sit, the more sweet and soft they get. (I like to drizzle warm coconut milk on top!)
