    Apple Sauce

    If you like, add finely chopped herbs to the finished sauce. Sage goes particularly well with pork, rosemary goes well with lamb and thyme is good with chicken. This sauce also freezes well.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes, plus cooling
    • Total time: 35 minutes, plus cooling 35 minutes

    Serves: 4 - 6


    • 500g cooking apples, such as Bramley
    • 200ml water
    • 50g caster sugar
    • 1 lemon


    1. Peel, core and chop the apples and put in a saucepan with the water and sugar. Finely pare 2 or 3 strips of zest from the lemon and add this, too. Bring to a simmer and cook slowly for about 25 minutes until the apple is completely soft.
    2. Remove the lemon zest. You can now either beat the sauce with a wooden spoon to blend it, or pass it through a sieve to obtain a very smooth consistency. Leave to cool, then serve with any roast meat.
