Apples with cardamom and lemon syrup

Apples with cardamom and lemon syrup can be kept in the fridge for as long as a week if they’re well preserved.




16 cardamom pods

2 cups of water

juice of 5 lemons

200 g of sugar

3 medium-size red apples





Clean the apples well and cut them into 8 slices, leaving the skin. Gently squash the cardamom berries with a heavy object. Add the pods, water, lemon juice and sugar in a nonstick medium-size pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 5 minutes.


Add the apples to the syrup and bring to a boil; if necessary, cover the pan with a saucer so that the apples are completely plunged into the syrup. Let the mixture boil over low heat for about 10 minutes, until the apples are tender. 


Remove from heat and let the apples cool without taking the lid off for about an hour. Apples with cardamom and lemon syrup can be kept in the fridge for as long as a week if they’re well preserved.
