This applesauce recipe is a classic in my house. I cook it every week, so I don't have to buy plastic jars, and what's more, it saves me money! My recipe is a source of fibre because I keep the peel on the apples, which gives them a nice pink colour. I use applesauce in my snack recipes, to accompany French toast / pancakes or simply on a bowl of yogurt. You can use the apples you have on hand! As for me, I buy the cheap ones, the ugly ones, and I always get good results! It's only the color changes (sometimes it's very pink, sometimes it's brown).
- 10 apples with peel, cut into small cubes (remove core)
- 80 ml (1/3 cup) water
- 10 ml (2 teaspoons) maple syrup (or honey)
- 5 ml (1 tsp.) lemon juice
- 5 mL (1 tsp.) ground cinnamon (or nutmeg, or cardamom)
Yield: 1 Jar Mason of 1L
