Sauce & Pickle Recipes > Apple Sauce

How to make apple sauce:
This sauce is the traditional accompaniment to roast pork. The slight acidity of the apples counter-balances the richness of the pork. There is a traditional affinity with pigs and orchards in Britain since pigs were very often put to fatten in the orchards where they could eat the windfall apples.


4 medium cooking apples
2 tablespoons sugar
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Peel and core the apples.
- Cut into quarters and cook gently in a little water until they become soft and fluffy.
- Add the sugar and stir in.
- Beat until smooth.
- Check for sweetness.
