Apple Sauce!

Can you remember when a random stranger left a HUGE bag of plums at my front door last year? (Plum Madness) Well they’ve struck again! Only this time it was a huge bag of apples…

Not knowing what the hell to do with the amount of apples I had – even after giving loads to family & friends, I took to my favourite food sites for some inspiration.

I came across a lovely blog called The Slow Roasted Italian. They wrote a post on lots of different uses for apples. So I settled on a simple apple sauce recipe.

Here is what you will need to make 1 x 500ml Jar.

  • 700g Apples, peeled & cored
  • 75ml Water
  • Juice of 1/2 a Lemon

Once you have peeled and cored all the apples – cut them into 1/2″ pieces and put them in a heavy based saucepan along with the water & lemon juice. Give it a stir to combine then pop a lid on it. Turn the heat to medium-high.

When it starts to boil rapidly, reduce the heat to low and put the lid back on. Stir frequently to stop the apples from catching on the bottom. Cook until the apples are nice and soft. (About 15-20 minutes.)

When they are ready, if you like a bit of texture – jar the sauce as it is. If you like it a little smoother – blitz in a blender then jar. (See how to sterilise your jars Here.)

And there you have it! It’s as easy as that. And if you keep it sealed – it will quite happily keep until Christmas so you can eat it with all them cold cuts, or even swirl it through some custard. Well… if you can wait that long anyway! Once you have opened it though, make sure to keep it in the fridge.

Well that’s it for now folks! Until next time.
