Apple Sauce is so quick and easy to make, it always amazes how many people buy the
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
500g cooking apple, peeled, cored and diced into small pieces
3 tbsp caster
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cinnamon stick
3 tbsp water
Place all the ingredients in the saucepan over a moderate/low heat. Cover and
leave to cook for 10-15 minutes until soft and begining to collapes. Stir regularly
to allow for even cooking and so the base doesn't burn.
Remove from the heat and take out the cinnamon stick. Mix vigourously with a
wooden spoon, you should have a rough puree (I do like some texture in my sauce, for
a smoother consistency mash or blend in a food processor).
