Adding this Apple Sauce to your food will literally make them taste like Christmas! No joke! It is sooo good, sweet, christmasy, healthy, and PINK! Like, what do you want more? There is nothing better! I do not know if you can remember my rhubarb compote I uploaded in summer. I added it to everything but the season has been over for a long time so I decided to come up with something for this season.
I actually made this a while ago but waited to share it with you because I thought that it was too early to upload a Christmas recipe before December. So now, here it is, on December first and you are going to be making this more than once this advent! Trust me! It is super easy and soo good! In my fridge, it never lasts longer than a week, no matter how much I make. I just top literally everything with it; yoghurt, oatmeal, ice cream, pancakes, toast, like honestly whatever I am eating.
It also works great in baking Christmas treats because it just brings all the spices with it. But me ABSOLUTELY favourite combo right now is soy yoghurt + homemade apple sauce (mixed in) + homemade granola! I have this for breakfast like every day and it is just so incredibly good!
The process of making it is really simple. Just chopping up some apples, sautéing them in some coconut oil, adding a little bit of water, adding the spices into the pot, letting it simmer for 25 minutes. This is the best part I believe because the entire house smells so incredibly good! I mean who does not like the smell of Christmas?! I do not know such a person! After the 25 minutes, you take the spices out, transfer the apples into a blender and boom, Zack, it is done!!
The consistency is so creamy, just goals. You could spoon it as it as and just have apple sauce as a dessert. When making this, it is really a great idea to make it in big batches, because it last pretty long in the fridge (about 3 – 4 weeks), and it makes a really great Christmas present too. Also, a host gift. You can just pour it into a pretty mason jar, wrap a tie around it and a really cute and homemade present is ready!
I honestly hope the you will like this recipe (I think you do because this is one of the best things ever!). If you recreate it, it would mean a lot to me if you would share it with @uneptcuisiniere or with #unepetitecuisiniere and leave a rating down at this post!
Wishing you all a beautiful advent!
