A spoon full of sweet apple sauce goes great with savory dishes or a dessert. My grandmother always had some applesauce on the dinner table which I loved! I thought by myself that applesauce shouldn’t be that hard to make. So I pretty much winged it and the result was an amazing tasting homemade applesauce. Keep reading to find out how I made it.
I bought a bunch of organic apples at my local organic store. They always have the sweetest. Next to that I didn’t bought anything else, because I had the rest at home. Basically all you need are apples and water. To spice things up a bit you can add cinnamon, sugar and lemon juice.
I advice to use sweet apples. I used Elstars, but you can also get Golden Delicious or Fuji apples. If your apples aren’t sweet enough use sugar or dates to sweeten it up.
- +/- 1 kg of apples
- 100 ml of water
- Tbsp of cinnamon
- Tbsp of sugar ( or couple of dates)
- Tbsp of lemon juice
You can always add more or less of cinnamon, sugar or lemon juice. Adjust it to your liking.
- Cut the apples(peeled or unpeeled) into small chunks
- Heat up the water in a pan and add sugar, cinnamon or lemon juice
- Stir until sugar is dissolved
- Heat until simmer, then add the apples
- Stir again and simmer until apples are soft
- Blend or mush the apples with a vork until smooth
You can save the apple sauce for about a week in your fridge.
