Here's a fresh take on a delicious way to make applesauce that'll surprise your taste buds with its tartness but delight you with it's creamy texture. Enjoy!
- 8 green apples, peeled and chopped into 1/2″ pieces
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 2 lemons, juice & zest
In an enameled cast iron or stainless steel pot over medium heat simmer the apples, lemon juice, lemon zest and butter together until the fruit is soft – approx 15-20 minutes.
Mash or puree the apples to whatever texture you like, or leave it chunky.
Serve warm or at room temperature. It will solidify a bit as it cools.
make it awesome:
- Top with chopped walnuts or almonds for crunch and some added protein and fat.
- Serve over chicken or pork or enjoy as a snack.
