Place apple juice, sugar & spice in a saucepan, and bring to a boil.
Turn down the heat & add the apples. Cook until tender, cover & allow to cool.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup toasted walnut pieces
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, place the sugar & a splash of water, enough to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a boil and cook until the sugar turns a rich golden brown. Add the walnuts and pour the mixture onto a greased sheet of parchment paper, and allow to cool.
Once cooled, the mixture will be hard and brittle. Place in a food processor and pulse until it is an even, but coarse texture.

To Plate, run a knife around the edge of the ramekin and turn out the panna cotta, garnish with the compote and sprinkle over the praline.
