This a very old English recipe for Homemade Applesauce that was served as a side dish to pork roast. If you omit butter while making it, you can use it as any regular applesauce you are used to. It is really easy to make from scratch and there are no unwanted ingredients present.
You can make it chunky or smooth, whichever you prefer.
- 500 g (1 lb) apples cored and quartered
- 30 g (1 oz) sugar
- optional: 40 g (1.5 oz) butter cinnamon, nutmeg,
Place the apples in a pot and add about 1/2 inch of water to the bottom of the pot. Cover and cook on medium heat until soft. If the water evaporates, add a few tablespoons more.
Mash and pureé them together with other ingredients and mix on low heat until you get smooth sauce.
Serve with pork roast.
