Apple-Cinnamon Compote

I have a bad cough the past two weeks. Coughing during the day, coughing during the night, I barely have any sleep. I wasn't able to go to work, part of me desperately wanted to get out of the bed and run some experiments.

Today is Canadian Thanksgiving. Here is a quick recipe if you are looking for a last minute idea, or planning ahead for American Thanksgiving. If you have a few apples left in your fridge, you can make an easy-to-make apple-cinnamon compote. Great as an appetizer, serve with turkey or serve with your french toast. Delicious, healthy and simple. Happy Thanksgiving!
