Part way through the cooking, apples still have some way to go.

Apples have cooked down. I added some raisins, and some chunks of leek. It’s delicious at this point and could have been served as a vegetable side dish.

But I went further, adding more water, caramelising the leeks, the pureeing the lot. A day later, it still tastes of leek, but the flavour of the apples is really beginning to come out. I’m wondering if I should add some additional spices: turmeric, clove, allspice.
