Unsweetened Applesauce

Apple Sauce

Apple Sauce is a healthy replacement for oil in baking recipes.

It’s not suited to all recipes, so if you are doing your own substitutions think about how adding apple will change the flavour of the baked treat. It can also change the moisture content of a recipe so it takes a lot of trial and error to get the ratios right in a recipe (trust me; I’ve mad a lot of mistakes!)

This Unsweetened AppleSauce recipe is so simple. Peel, cut, boil and mash!

PS the left overs taste great with roast pork.
