This is so simple, I cant believe I have’nt started making my own apple sauce sooner. It is cheap, healthy and economical, since I use old apple sauce jars. Basically you can use any kind of apples, but I find that I get the best result when mixing tart and sweet apples together. If you use homegrown or organic apples, you can even keep the peel, of course you need a good blender to make everything creamy. I am dreaming of getting vitamix one day, when we finally get our own home, the first purchase will be a vitamix. Even if we have to sleep on a floor. Haha, floor bed is another thing I wish to have, so it just might turn out as planned. Anyway, for now I peel my apples and use hand blender. The result is perfectly creamy sweet and sour apple sauce. We use apple sauce in morning porridge, on pancackes and waffles and in muffins and cakes in place of oil.
- 2 granny smith apples, peeled and cut
- 4 sweet apples, peeled and cut
Put the apples on a steamimg pot and steam for 15 minutes or until soft. Transfer in a blender and blend until smooth. Put the sauce in a glass jar with a lid, but let it cool down before placing it in the fridge. Optionally you can add a few soaked dates for more sweetness or some lemon juice for more sour result. Lasts in the fridge for about 3-4 days.
