I've never found a simple recipe for apple sauce on it's own, so I decided to write this one up. It's really simple and goes well on it's own, with ice cream or on-top of other food, such as pancakes.
- 3 cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 3 tbsp caster sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 3 tbsp water
- Place all the ingredients in a saucepan which has a lid.
- Put the lid on the pan and heat over a low heat for 30 to 45 minutes, until the apple is soft, but not mush. You can stir halfway through if you think you might not have the heat on low enough.
- You can cook it longer if you want it more like a puree or shorter if you want it crisper.
Makes about a cereal bowl's worth of sauce (250ml or so).
