My mum has many different fruits growing in her garden. Around these times, she always has loads of apples. This is why, last week, I got a bag full of apples.
Last week we got to enjoy a delicious homemade apple pie my mum made. She has many fruits to deal with around this time of year, so she makes jam, apple sauce and apple pie. This year, I asked her for some apples aswell.
I never really liked the regular apple sauce all that much. I prefer the chunky kind and especially the one with some extra cinnamon in it! I also don’t want to eat too much sugar, so homemade apple sauce is a great alternative. I can decide for myself what to put in it.
Now I want to share a basic apple sauce recipe with you. I can’t tell you exactly how much of everything I put in it, because well.. I honestly don’t know. Around the end of the process, I try a bit and add more cinnamon (or honey) to taste.
– 1kg Apples
– Around 4 tbsp honey
– Around 3 tbsp cinnamon
- Start with peeling all the apples. Cut them in quarters, remove the insides and cut the apples in small pieces.
- Add a layer of water to a pan and add all the apple pieces. Add the honey and cinnamon.
- Put the pan on medium fire and stir regularly.
- After about 20 minutes, you should have something resembling (chuncky) apple sauce. Try a bit (watch out, hot!) and add honey or cinnamon to taste.
You can keep this in the fridge for a couple of days, but it’s also perfectly fine to freeze it. Just take it out of the freezer and let it defrost in the fridge for half a day, before eating. If you’re in a hurry, heat it up slowly in the microwave instead.
