I’ve always found shop bought sauces quite acidic and prefer to make my own. Of course, raw horseradish is not easy to come by and mint sauce requires fresh mint which is not your everyday cupboard staple, so it is harder to practice than preach. However, apple sauce is really very easy.
Makes enough for 4 people
- Two decent sized apples, peeled, cored and diced.
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp caster sugar
- Zest of half an unwaxed lemon
In a covered pan over a medium heat, cook the apples in the water with the lemon zest until they go nice and soft and mushy. Beat in the sugar and butter until amalgamated and set aside to cool before serving.
See! Easy. The choice of apple doesn’t matter too much; I use Braeburn as that’s generally what I have lying around.
