Homemade Applesauce

februari 18, 2016

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.

Ingredients

  • +/- 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.

Directions

  1. Cut the apples(peeled or unpeeled) into small chunks
  2. Heat up the water in a pan and add sugar, cinnamon or lemon juice
  3. Stir until sugar is dissolved
  4. Heat until simmer, then add the apples
  5. Stir again and simmer until apples are soft
  6. Blend or mush the apples with a vork until smooth

You can save the apple sauce for about a week in your fridge.
