Apple Berry Compote Breakfast Recipe

When I was a child, my grandparents often ate baked apples for breakfast. Now I know why. This simple recipe supports a healthy gut and fuels our body for a productive day. When the apple skin begins to shimmer during cooking, it is releasing pectin, a super nutrient that benefits and supports a healthy gut. Apple Compote with Berries is a great functional food recipe for healing and main-taining our intestinal microbiome, which is the home of our immune system.
