Nan's Apple Sauce

Nannas Apple Sauce

My Nan's Apple Sauce was a favourite with all us grandkids, at every family gathering we would fight over the last little dregs in the bowl, and whenever we were sick it was our most highly sought-after recovery food. 

I was sceptical as to whether I would be able to produce something that tasted even nearly as warm and wonderful as hers, but when I had that first spoonful, I was pleasantly surprised to be transported back to her dinner table. 

You will need 
6 Granny Smith Apples
3tbsp of Lime Juice 
3tbsp Caster Sugar 
3/4tsp Ground All Spice 
3/4tsp Ground Cinnamon 
1/4 cup of water. 

These are the measurements I use to make a batch, however you can adjust it as you need. 
2 medium sized apples will make around 1 1/2 cups of Apple Sauce. 
You will need 1tbsp Sugar, 1tbsp Lime Juice, 1/8 cup of water and 1/4tsp Spices for every 2 apples. 

Peel, core, and slice apples, set aside in a large saucepan/pot. 

Add lime juice, sugar, cinnamon, all spice, and water to the saucepan and mix until the apples are coated. 

Set on stovetop over medium heat, place a lid on your saucepan and stir occasionally until all the water has been absorbed by the apples and there is no free water in the base of your saucepan. 

Transfer cooked apples to a food processor, blend until smooth. 
Remove the lid and stir the sauce with a spoon, blend on high for another 30 seconds to ensure that any chunks that may have been pushed to the outside of the bowl the first time are processed. 
(If you don't have a food processor you can use a stick blender or mash them by hand, mashing by hand won't result in as smooth a sauce, but it will taste great all the same.) 

Serve warm or store in the fridge for later use.
