Still cold outside... still wanting warm things to eat inside. This chunky ginger applesauce is easy to make, tastes delicious warm, and - bonus - makes the whole house smell amazing!
What you'll need:
- 6 medium sized cooking apples - I used Granny Smiths
- 20g fresh ginger
- pinch of ground cinnamon
What to do:
First peel the apples and and the ginger.
Next cut the apples up into reasonably large chunks, as below:
Place the apple chunks in a medium/large saucepan. Next, finely chop the ginger and put it in the saucepan along with the apple chunks. Sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon on top if you'd like.
Pour water into the saucepan over the apples - the water level should be just below the apple level. Bring the water to a boil, and then allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently so the apples do not stick to the bottom of the saucepan. Your kitchen should be smelling pretty good by now...
You can enjoy this warm directly from the saucepan (it's practically dessert that way!) or let cool for some surprisingly refreshing applesauce.
