Went to an orchard and now have more apples that you know what to do with? Than this recipe for chunky apple sauce served with butter, honey glazed almonds, and cinnamon is especially great for you.
We went a little overboard and got two pecks of apples.
Mind you, these are beautiful crisp sweet fresh from the tree apples. But tried as might, we could not finish the two pecks.
We were also not going to let them go to waste.
A great way to use up leftover fresh apples is to make apple sauce. Apple sauce is easy to make, you can make a bunch, and it freezes well so you can enjoy it when you’re not fed up of apples. Full recipe below.
Start with Orchard fresh apples, here I use a combination of Cortland and Ida Red.
Add water and fresh lime juice. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to med and simmer for about 20 mins. Stir, add sugar and lower heat to low. Cover and let simmer for 5 mins.
That’s it! Let the apple sauce cool down a little before serving.
Serve as is or with yummy toppings, like butter, brown sugar, a drizzle of honey, pecans, almonds, cinnamon, or even maybe a little nutmeg.
I like a big bowl of warm apple sauce with butter, cinnamon, and honey glazed almonds.
It’s the perfect sweet comfort food for the colder days.
