Compote Of Apples With Fried Bread

Bake a dozen good cooking apples, scrape out the pulp, boil this with

half-a-pound of sugar to a pound of pulp, until it becomes stiff. It

must be stirred all the time it is boiling. When done, place the compote

in the centre of the dish, piling it up high. Have ready some triangular

pieces of fried bread, arrange some like a crown on the top, the

remainder at the bottom of the compote. Have ready warmed half a pot of

apricot marmalade mixed with a little plain sugar-syrup, and pour it

over the compote, taking care that each piece of bread is well covered.
