Apple sauce

When I first think of apple sauce, my mind immediately goes to that grainy jarred stuff that you eat cold. A last minute side dish for when you’ve forgotten to serve any fruits or veggies with your dinner. Ick.

But this is apple sauce of a different variety. Served warm and sprinkled with cinnamon, it’s a delightfully light counterpart to all the heavy dishes that we seem to favor at this time of year.

Apple Sauce

  • Apples, any variety – peeled, cored and sliced

Place all your apples into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave them until they are tender, 5 – 10 minutes depending on the amount of apples you have. (Today I did about 8 cups worth and it took the full 10.) Place into a food processor and puree until smooth.* Serve warm.

*Note that I like my apple sauce the consistency of baby food. If you prefer a bit more texture to yours, you can pulse your food processor instead of an all out puree, or pay more attention to your apple variety. Choose one that cooks down into sauce well, and skip the processor altogether.
