Apple Sauce

Homemade apple sauce

Apple sauce is unbelievably easy to make, basically apples and water, you can’t get more simple than that.

You can, by all means, add flavourings to your sauce such as a sweetener if your apples are a bit sour or some cinnamon because cinnamon and apples are a match made in heaven in my opinion!

I use this sauce in my apple muffins, but you can use it a number of recipes; cookies, pancakes or just add some granola and yoghurt to the apple sauce and breakfast is ready!

Makes 1 cup.

Ingredients

-4 apples, cored, peeled and diced (approx. 2 generous cups when diced)

-1/2 cup water

-optional flavourings – coconut sugar, maple syrup, ground cinnamon

How To Make

Place the diced apples, water and any flavourings you want to add into a medium-sized pan and bring to a simmer.

Cook until the apples have softened, adding more water during the cooking process if needed. ย Sometimes 1/2 cup is enough then other times I add another 1/4 cup more, it depends on the variety of apple I’m using.

Once the apples have softened and are starting to break down, blend until desired consistency – I don’t like mine completely smooth but that is a personal preference.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.

Enjoy!
