Thanks for the lovely comments on my last post.
Even though I really love cookbooks and am very inspired by going through them, I am not a recipe-follower. My cooking is quiet creative and follows always my mood and what I am having at home. I always change the things written in cookbooks and create my own meals…
So it was not easy to write down the apple sauce recipe with precise measurements, but I will give it a try – and I recommend you to change it according to your taste and to be creative with it, too…
Apple Sauce Recipe (Apfelmus)
10 big ripe apples (even the brown ones)
1,5 cups of sugar (more or less, depending on how sweet you like it)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Juice from 1 orange
2 cups of water
Peel the apples and cut bad parts and the pips out. Cut the apples in little tiny pieces and put them into a big saucepan. Put then the sugar, the cinnamon and the whole cloves into the saucepan and cover all with the orange juice and water.
Then put the saucepan on the stove and heat up until all boils. Turn heat down and let slowly cook until the apples are really soft (approx. an hour). Make sure it does not burn (if it tends to do so, add some more water) and enjoy the lovely smell it brings into your house!!
Now take the saucepan and mix all with a liquidizer into small until you get a creamy sauce. Put it on the stove and boil up again. Then fill it immediately and really hot in well cleaned preserving jars, close and turn them upside down (at least for 10 minutes) to make sure you will get a vacuum inside. Let cool down and range them for later – or enjoy now!!
Happy Weekend to you!
