Homemade Apple Sauce

super easy


Apple sauce is something I’ve loved ever since I was a kid. Served with chicken and croquettes, pork or even mixed under mash. It is not as common in Ireland though. You can find apple sauce in stores but there’s usually only one or two options. It is so easy to make though and costs a lot less than store bought apple sauce. All you need is 3 ingredients: apples, butter, and water. You can add sugar and cinnamon for additional flavour but you don’t have to.

If you’d rather not add sugar to your sauce, you can also just replace a few of the green apples with sweet red ones for a sweeter taste or a few drops of honey or maple syrup. Same goes for the chunkiness of the sauce, I absolutely love it when there are no apple pieces left in it and you have one silky smooth apple sauce, but if you prefer it with some chunky apple bits, simply don’t mix the sauce too much or scoop a bit out before you start mixing and then stir it back in.
