Why do you boil apples
It's called compot, like a tea with fresh boiled fruits, very tasty.
Then it should be stewed apples
I think there is a deeper mystery here
Ultimately from Latin ferveo with the same meaning. Related to English fervour
Can două mere fierte mean "two boiling apples" as well?
"fierte" is a finished action... so no, whereas "fierbând (which is gerund)" means boiling (in the process of boiling)
Ok I see. Can I use it as an adjective, e.g. "marul fierbând" for "the boiling apple" (in the process of boiling)?
Mersi! I'm sending you two lingots and a porumb fiert.
I wrote exactly the same and they say that it's a mistake. How can it be?
Who boils apples though?
You can make Kompot (compot) out of them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kompot
