Warm, subtle, soft and so gentle. These stewed apples are a true comfort food and are great for cleansing. I recommend using the most local delicious organic apples you can find. When making a simple dish that really highlights the subtleties of ingredients, let the deliciousness of nature shine through your dish and always go for the best.
These apples warm the soul, the softness of the apples nourish the softness within. The tenderness of this dish reminds us to be gentle with ourselves, especially during a deep mind-body-psyche-spirit transformational experience, like a cleanse.
The simpleness of this dish reminds us of the delicious joy in a simple slow-living approach to life. This food reminds us that there is no need to over complicate or over think things in life or in food. With only 4 ingredients, these stewed apples are easy and only take a little time to soften on the stove.
If you’re coming off the cleanse, this is a great vegan alkalizing warming option. The apples will be easy to digest, the coconut butter can be a nice way to gently re-introduce plant based fats to your digestive system. Some people may have a harder time with raw foods, depending on one’s constitution, for them this is a great warm and nourishing option while on a vegan alkalizing diet.
This would be a great treat to make during apple picking season with apples you’ve picked yourself, if an orchard is accessible! In certain parts of the US organic local apples can be fairly hard to come by. So if you do use non-organic apples, wash them really well! According to my studies at Herbal Academy, white vinegar + salt make a great produce cleaner that removes pesticides.
