Cooking with Auden: Apple Sauce

As I have written before, why buy apple sauce? The jarred stuff is full of sugar and who knows what else. It is easy to make and can be made to the exact taste of the person eating it.

Auden has always been a huge fan of apple sauce, and this was the first time that he really got to make it almost entirely on his own.

Apple and Pear Sauce
apples and pears
water, OJ or cider
seasoning (e.g. cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, all spice, cloves...etc)

Start by peeling the apples and pears.

Once peeled, slice into pieces.

Chop into big pieces. No need to use a super sharp knife, use something kid safe.

Place the apples and pears in a pot and add a touch of liquid and the seasoning to taste.

Cook, covered until the apples are soft. Then mash using a food mill.

As always, the taster gives it a thumbs up.

  1. Wow-Auden is so big! Time has flown... Hey James, how are you? I totally dropped off the planet after Spain, I know, but I wonder what you three are up to often. You're cooking is amazing and I'm looking forward to making some of these dishes. Hope you are all well!
