Bakeapple Breakfast Parfait

I’ll never forget my first memory of the smell of bakeapples boiling on the stove as mom prepared them to make jam. The smell disgusted me so much I refused to be in the house whenever she would make a batch, let alone ever taste them. Years later, presented with a homemade cheesecake topped with the berries, I finally yielded and tried them. I cannot believe I deprived myself so long. By far my favourite preserved berry! And this morning I found a way to incorporate them into breakfast without toast!
