This week has been so crazy. trying to fit in long shifts at work, life and of course the Living Yoga Challenge. But just while I have 10 minutes to spare, I just wanted to share with you all quickly a really simple Homemade Apple Sauce recipe that I made this weekend.

2. 3.Winter ’tis the season for apples, and boy do we have our fair share of them! We honestly can’t finish them each week, before our next box of fruit and veg come the following week. I think it might just be the cooler weather, we just don’t crave fruits like we normally do in the warmer months. But what I do crave is baked goods! And what’s a good ingredient to have on hand for baked goods? Apple sauce!

It’s honestly so simple to make yourself as well. No need to go out and buy jars of the stuff, when you can make your own in less then half an hour!4 5 6 8.It also lasts up to about a week in the fridge, just remember to pop a label on it so you remember when you made it!

Enjoy everyone!

  1. Yum! I love homemade applesauce and had actually never tried store bought until I was at least a teenager since my mom always made it homemade. Have you ever tried making it with a food mill? It makes it even easier, eliminates the need to peel and core the apples and definitely minimizes waste! Just chop the apples (including the peel and core) into small chunks and follow your same steps above. Then throw it all in the food mill after cooking and go!

    This is a food mill if you’ve never heard of one before. http://www.amazon.com/Foley-No-101-Food-Mill/dp/B001LN5NK2/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1434512345&sr=8-15&keywords=food+mill

    Mine is actually from a thrift store and probably 30 years old but works like a charm!

    I love reading your blog from the states and your simple but nutritious recipes!

      You’re so lucky you’ve been brought up with homemade apple sauce! It’s not a common thing in Asian culture, and so the only apple sauce I really ever used up until a few years ago was store bought! And now I know I’ll never ever go back to store bought! I’ve actually never heard or seen of a food mill until now!! It looks amazing though, I’ll have to look out for it next time I’m out thrifting! Thank you so much for your recommendation! xx
