This morning, I noticed that there were a few apples that needed to be used up. I decided to try to make a topping for some pancakes, and give Dino a break from being the weekend breakfast chef. It turned out really good. Sometimes the best recipes are put together with what you have laying around in your house! I'm guessing at the amounts here, so feel free to play around with them.

Apple Molasses Compote

3 apples, peeled and diced
1T butter
1t fresh lemon juice
2t molasses
1T light brown sugar
1t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
pinch salt

Melt butter in a saucepan. Add apples and sauté for a few minutes without browning them. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook over medium-low heat until soft, stirring occasionally. Serve on top of freshly griddled pancakes.
