Apple Sauce

Apple sauce is a puree made from peeled or unpeeled apples with the addition of flavorful spices like cinnamon. It is served as an accompaniment with main courses usually for breakfast like oatmeal, pancakes, muesli etc. and also in baking cookies and cakes. It is often used as food for babies because it does not require the use of teeth. It is sometimes recommended to combat diarrhoea, since it is high in pectin. It can be made into a smooth paste by blending. But I like it to be chunky.


Large apples - 3 

Sugar - 3 spoons or to taste

Cinnamon stick - 2

Water - 1 cup


Peel the apples, core them and chop them roughly.

In a saucepan add the water, cinamon sticks and chopped apples and bring to a rolling boil. Cover with lid and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until the apples get cooked well.

Add the sugar and mix well.Simmer for 3 more minutes. Fish out the cinnamon sticks and transfer to blender.Blend to a smooth paste. You can also skip the blending step.

Store in refrigerator.
