I’ve seen so many recipes for apple sauce, and most include added sweetener. Home made apple sauce really doesn’t need the added sugar – apples contain enough of their own natural sugar, which is brought out in the cooking process. So it really couldn’t be easier than this. I’ve been making this since my eldest son was a baby: He loved it then and today it perfectly complements potato latkes.
Use large green or yellow apples.
1. Peel and cut your apples into chunks (about 12 chunks per apple) and put them into a microwave safe bowl
2. Add 4 tablespoons of water per apple
3. Cook on 90% for 5 minutes (or until the apples are completely soft)
4. Puree the apples either by hand with a potato masher or in a small blender
