Poached Apples (SCD & GFCF)

While this recipe uses apples, you can use other fruit as well. After you’ve finished poaching the fruit, save any of the leftover poaching liquid: as it cools it thickens and can be used like a jam or jelly. (The pectin from the apples thicken it.)

Poached fruit is great as a breakfast food, a snack, and it’s delicious when eaten with vanilla ice cream! Other ice creams may be tried, however the vanilla ice cream compliments the poached fruit’s flavour and is also a good contrast between the different foods’ temperatures if the fruit is still warm from poaching or is reheated.


1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. ground cloves or allspice
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
3-5 tbsp. water


  1. Peel the apples and cut in half, removing the core and leafy part. Melt the honey in a saucepan over medium heat, add the vanilla and spices. Cook for a few minutes and add the water, stirring. Continue to cook for a few minutes more, or until you can smell the fragrance of the spices.
  2. Add apple halves and lower to a simmer. Cook the apples until a pointed knife can penetrate the apples easily without resistance – the apples should be soft but firm, not mushy. Remove from heat and serve. Enjoy!

  1. Having been commanded by my niece to check this out I can say that I am glad I did! They taste wonderful and would also go nicely with ice cream or other fruit. It is a lovely light seasoning on them where you can still taste the flavour of the apple. I really enjoyed it! Nice work. Keep them coming! 🙂
