apple sauce


makes: 500g, time: 1-3 hours

1kg sweet apples, skin on, cored and chopped
2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)

Heat the oven to 150C (non-fan 170C). Place the apples in an ovenproof pan and roast them, covered, for about 1 hour, or until completely soft. Stir halfway through. Alternatively, cook in a slow cooker on high for 3 hours.

Transfer to a blender or food processor, add the cinnamon, if using, and blitz until smooth. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and use within 1 week.
