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. 

The ingredients  

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) 

The recipe  

  1. 1. Chop the apples into chunks and throw them into a pot or deep pan with water, sugar, lemon juice, and optional cinnamon. 
  1. 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. 
  1. 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. 
  1. 4. Enjoy! 

Delia, eat your heart out
