- 1 kg apples (e.g. Jonagold, Elstar or any other kind of apple that’s a bit sweet)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- small layer of water
Kitchen equipment needed
- vegetable peeler
- cutting board & chef’s knife
- large pan
- immersion blender
Preparation — 10 minutes
Making your own apple sauce is really easy. The only preparation is peeling the apples, then removing the core and chop the apples into pieces. The size of the pieces don’t really matter, the bigger the pieces the longer it takes to cook.
Finishing up the home-made apple sauce — 15 minutes
ADD the apple pieces to the large pan and add a small layer of water to the pan. There’s no need to add sugar, depending on what kind of apples you’ve used. If you used sour apples, you can now add a little bit of sugar. ADD the cinnamon stick and bring to a boil.
Turn down the heat and let it simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the apple pieces. REMOVE the cinnamon stick and use the immersion blender to create a smooth apple sauce. You can also use a fork, so it will still have some apple pieces left if that’s what you prefer. Enjoy this apple sauce as a condiment for fries, chicken, roast pork and so much more.
