  • Peel, core and cut the apples into four slices each.
  • Make a caramel with the sugar and a little water.
  • Pour in the apples with the citrus peel and turn up the heat. Shake the pan (do not use a spoon) so the apples are covered with the caramel.

  • Reverse the mould onto a serving dish and portion up with some creme fraiche or ice cream.
