Applesauce, where to start? It’s the most useful sauce you can make at home! And it’s almost silly how easy it is to make your own, healthy, sugar free apple sauce with No conservatives added. You really only need apples, and water to make it, and it only requires five minute of your time, then it cookes itself.
Believe it or not, but applesauce is one of the things I use the most! I make it and use it in my porridge, eat it with pancakes, add it as topping for desserts and of course bake with it. It’s so incredibly easy to make, and much more delicious than the store bought. You only need your favorite apples, a pot and some water. If I make it to use for breakfast or dessert topping I prefer to make it a bit chunky, not running it with a handmixer. But if I use it for baking, I make it the same way but mix it with a hand mixer to have it smooth.
When making apple sauce to use for breakfast, dessert or topping I love to experiment with different flavors. Some of my favorites are cinnamon, cardamom, ginger or honey.
Applesauce is really great to use in baked goods. It can replace both sugar (acting as a sweetener, making you need less sugar) and butter/oil. It also provides moist and makes the baked goods more juicy and tender.
How to store applesauce:
Applesauce should be stored in a boiled jar in the fridge. Then it holds for approximately one week, but in my house it rarely last for that long. Make sure to either wash your jar in a dish washer or boil it before you add your applesauce to it. Also allow the applesauce to cool completely before putting it in the fridge.
