- 3 Granny Smith apples
- 2 Kanzi apples (or Gala or Braeburn apples)
- 3 tbsp water
- ¾ tspn Gewürzhaus Apple Cake Spice
- ¾ tspn Gewürzhaus Vanilla Bean Sugar
- 1 tbsp butter
Peel and cut the apples into quarters, core with a sharp knife, remove the stems and place in a saucepan with the water, spice, sugar and butter. Over medium heat, stir to combine, then cover with a lid and let it cook for 10 min, checking and stirring every few minutes.
When the apples have softened, use a vegetable masher to break the apples down to your preferred consistency.
Notes from Gewürzhaus
This recipe takes approximately 15 minutes.
Serves 8 (approx 500ml of apple sauce)
The apple sauce may be frozen. It is recommended that it is frozen for no longer than 3- 4 months before using. It will last a little over a week in the fridge.
The apple sauce can be enjoyed with both sweet or savoury dishes. Try it with roast potatoes, roast pork, baked cauliflower or for breakfast with porridge. It also makes an easy dessert – simply top it with a crumble mix for an apple crumble; or stir it through a muffin mix to add some fruit and moisture.
Many vegan recipes use apple sauce as a substitute for eggs in combination with coconut oil and maple syrup, so if you are following a vegan diet, keep some in the fridge to always have on hand.
