One of the simplest of sauces, this apple sauce is an excellent and traditional accompaniment to roast pork.
- 100g cooking apple
- 15g sugar
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
- Peel and core the apple.
- Chop the apple into roughly 1cm pieces.
- Put the apple into a saucepan with the water and sugar.
- Over a gentle heat, cook the apple until it has broken down and has formed a thick purée (about 10 - 15 minutes).
- Stir in the lemon juice and serve.
- The ideal apple to use is a cooking apple such as Bramley or Cox because they break down easily when cooked, however, any apple can be used (but it might need a bit of mashing).
- This sauce is traditionally served with pork because its sweet and sharp taste compliments the meat.
