Reducing waste is at the very core of this delicious apple sauce recipe!
Do you have a bowl of apples that are starting to lose their crunch and get a little soft? Don’t throw them away just yet, because they can be given a new lease of life as a tasty, rustic, waste-reducing condiment.
Our apple sauce recipe is incredibly easy and even lets you leave the skin on, meaning there’s absolutely no unnecessary waste.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- • 4-6 apples of your choice
- • 250 ml of water
- • 3 tbsp of sugar
- • Splash of lemon juice
- • ½ tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 1. Chop the apples into chunks and throw them into a pot or deep pan with water, sugar, lemon juice, and optional cinnamon.
- 2. Bring the pot to a boil, and then lower to a simmer. Cover with a lid and cook for around 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. If it starts to get too dry, add more water.
- 3. You’ll start to notice the apples breaking down and turning into an apple sauce consistency. You can smash them with a potato masher or the end of your stirring spoon to aid the process.
- 4. Enjoy!
