A 15-minute Caramelised Apple Sauce that is super tasty, and can be used in many ways!
In cakes, as a side dish, you name it. It’s a healthy replacement for sugar in sweets, especially if you are trying to make them healthier!
All you need to make this apple puree is:
2. Brown sugar
3. A tiny bit of water
Now, I found that it doesn’t really matter what apples you use, the principle is the same, although some apples may take longer to cook. I also found that grating the apples, helps them cook quicker because, in the end, they are going to get blitzed up, so you really don’t have to put effort into dicing them. Saves you time to just grate them, and it will help you cook the apple sauce quicker.
How To Make Apple Sauce:
Grate the apples. Then add them to a saucepan with the sugar and a touch of water.
Cook the apples stirring frequently until the water is evaporated. Blend the apples with a touch of water until a puree, and the job is done!
