Apple and Pear Sauce

I made this sauce to go with pork and it nicely combines two fruits which are in season at this time of the year. By choosing a sweet variety of apple I avoided using any sugar. You can also use this sauce as a compote for breakfast and I imagine it could be pureed for baby food. It freezes well too.

1 large Fuji apple – peeled, cored and cut into small pieces
3 Bosc pears – peeled, cored and cut into small pieces
1 tbsp. water

Place apple, pears and water in a lidded saucepan. Cook over a lowish heat for 15 minutes or so, stirring occasionally, until fruit is soft. Mash or puree.
