3 tablespoons brown sugar

3 tablespoons desiccated coconut

115g butter or margarine, melted


Preheat oven to 200C. Peel and slice 4-6 apples and place in a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle with cloves, 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 tablespoons water.

In the wake of a storm that is estimated to have impacted more than 80 per cent of South Australian apples and pears, local growers are asking shoppers to be ‘Hailstorm Heroes’ and support the industry by buying fruit with a few spots and dots. Pears and apples with a few small hail spots are still great quality and good to eat and you can grab them at your nearest supermarket or greengrocer.
