Apple Sauce

Apple Sauce is so quick and easy to make, it always amazes how many people buy the premade stuff.

6-10 Portions
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes



  • 500g cooking apple, peeled, cored and diced into small pieces
  • 3 tbsp caster
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 3 tbsp water


  1. Place all the ingredients in the saucepan over a moderate/low heat. Cover and leave to cook for 10-15 minutes until soft and begining to collapes. Stir regularly to allow for even cooking and so the base doesn't burn.
  2. Remove from the heat and take out the cinnamon stick. Mix vigourously with a wooden spoon, you should have a rough puree (I do like some texture in my sauce, for a smoother consistency mash or blend in a food processor).
  3. Serve the sauce warm or at room temperature.
