Who doesn't love apple sauce? Add it to smoothies to add thickness, or use it solely as a quick dessert. It's also a great accompaniment to pork chops! Our recipe is really easy and fast to make ... just add some dehydrated cranberries and raisins as mentioned in the recipe below. Also, you'll see that we added a tablespoon of apricot jam - it adds a little zing!
We enjoyed our sauce warm, straight from the pan, spooned right
over some French vanilla ice cream – absolute HEAVEN in a dish!
It didn't take more than five minutes to make either, just gave us just enough time for the ice cream to soften a little in the bowls.
You can double up the recipe ingredient amounts, as the quantity above was good for two people ... and store in your freezer. And yes, you can omit the apricot jam, but honestly, it adds a little zing, and thickens the juice.
If it's a bit runny, keep heating it up and the extra liquid will evaporate. If you're into smoothies, add some of this sauce to your blender for instant thickening. You can use this as a thickener too when making fruit leathers - click the link for more about fruit leathers.
Try using a three-fruit marmalade (or a regular marmalade) too and let us know
how that worked for you!
