This is a great homemade apple sauce recipe when you have lots of apples that are too small to peel. Learn how to make apple sauce - German style. The lemon in the recipe is there to heighten the apple flavour.
In fact there is nothing nicer than homemade apple sauce with hand-picked apples, and it is so easy to make. I normally make up a large batch in autumn (this is when I get crates of apples from my father-in-law) and freeze it. Will keep for up to 1 year.
Warm apple sauce also goes great with:
Or serve it for breakfast with your favourite yoghurt
And of course, roast pork, we serve it that way in the UK
You can use any type of apple for this recipe and you will probably find that you do not need to add sugar.
3 1bs apples
Wash the apples and remove the crowns and stems only. Quarter the apples but do not remove the cores. Put the apples and the lemon in a saucepan and add about 1 inch of water. Bring to the boil and simmer until the apples are soft and tender.
Press the apples through a sieve. Taste and add more sugar if required.
Serve your apple sauce just warm and never ice cold from the fridge.
Here is one for the kids. Beat 2 egg whites until they are stiff and then fold into your hot apple sauce.
