Stewed apples

Austrians love desserts! I would say for us the dessert is the most important course in a multi-course dinner. Sometimes we eat desserts as a main course – you can truly say we are dessert lovers! Stewed apples is a light and simple dessert. But my absolute culinary delight is Emperor’s Mess with stewed apples. On my parents’ farm we had lot of apples besides making apple cider we preserved stewed apples. During the winter we always had a fruity and tasteful dessert.
