Not only is it perfect as a stand alone dish, but you can add it to so many things. Add a scoop to your morning oatmeal, add a scoop as a pancake topping, make a towering layered dessert of apple sauce, raw ice cream and apple slices…use it as a face mask at night…(just kidding…)
Skip that jar of processed applesauce from the store and make your own – it’s as easy as:
- Chop up 6 apples (I used organic Gala apples) and place in food processor
- Add 8 pitted dates (for sweetness)
- Add all spice OR cinnamon and nutmeg (add as much as you like depending on your taste preference)
- Add a dash of sea salt
Pulse the food processor a bit to mix it all and then switch to blend. If it seems like it needs water you can add a drizzle of spring water to get things moving, but you really shouldn’t need it. I found that if you place a couple of the dates in the food processor first, before the apples, it helps with the mixing process.
This should make enough for 3 people – or two really hungry Apple Sauce Monsters. 😀 You could also top this with chopped walnuts or raisins.
It was the best apple sauce I’ve had in a really long time – definitely worth the effort to make your own! This would also be an awesome gift or party favor – just make a big batch and put in mason jars for your guests to take home on their way out!
