Super easy, super fast apple sauce

Apple sauce is the perfect accompaniment with pork. It is also an excellent topping for pancakes, and ice cream, and babies love it as well. Yet until recently I never realised just how easy and fast it was to make.

It is also a perfect recipe for me to try when I have so little time to spend in the kitchen… I am currently planning a trip to Devon and Cornwall, and I leave a couple of days.


  • Preparation time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking time: 15 minutes


I find Granny Smith apples work best with this recipe, but you can try any variety or combination of apples you like, however, cooking times may vary.

  • 1lb/450g Granny Smith apples
  • ¾oz/20g caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water

  1. Peel, core and chop the apples into small chunks. You can add them straight into the pot.
  2. Sprinkle in the sugar and add the water.
  3. Place a tight-fitting lid on the pot and stew the apples for about 15 minutes over a gentle heat, stirring once or twice during cooking.
  4. Once the apples are soft and fluffy, beat to a purée using a potato masher or a large fork.

Tip: to make your apple sauce even more delicious, add a few dashes of ground cinnamon to your finished sauce.
