Apple Pie for the family

We have been ordering the Oddbox vegetables lately and it is such a joy to receive a box of treats to use in your cooking. We do not plan our menu around it, but we always make full use of it, this recipe came about because we got some lovely large apples in a box that we needed to use. I need to give some thanks to Diethood as I searched Pinterest for a recipe and theirs seemed healthy and tasty, perfect for the entire family! Now heat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius and start your prep.

Put a knob of butter in a pot and melt once bubbling add the apples and sugar, stir well. Add the water and a tsp of cinnamon to the pot and simmer for 20 minutes. In the meantime, open the canned peaches rinse them under the tap and chop into pieces.
