Applesauce



I should totally stop cooking until I get a new camera. But this was taste & create, and I had signed up before the whole camera dropping event happened. Plus, I have a lovely partner in Jen from PiccanteDolce. Literally, the blog name means spicy & sweet (yes, I had to look that up). That's exactly what the blog is - a collection of a wide range of recipes.

I felt an instant affinity as that's pretty much how I cook; just anything that takes my fancy, be it salad or cake. What I decided to cook from Jen's blog is a simple applesauce. I've been planning to make some for a long time, so this was finally my chance.

The only change I made was to use golden delicious apples and all brown sugar (instead of part white that Jen does). Now go look at her picture, and look at mine. I totally can't understand how my applesauce gets to be this brown when she has a pale cream concoction. Whatever the color though, this was superbly delicious. Had some warm with granola, then cold mixed in yogurt. The rest of it is now in the freezer. Any ideas on how to use it up?

Ah, I love apple sauce. even with a mobile you are doing a great job. But of course with a camera you get much better clarity. Though that shouldn't stop you from cooking or posting..:)

The best thing to do with home made apple sauce is eat it on it's own. Good job with the mobile camera...I would've used it as an excuse.

I know exactly what u mean by that-i too shoot with a cell phone & so miss not havn a digi cam-can imagine u!
I love applesauce on vanilla icecream with toasted pralined nuts &(a drizzle of dulce de leche hersheys caramel topping)
And besides loads of recipes online applesauce is used in place of fats for many a cake.
And ofcourse u can use it to sweeten ur morning cereal!

Like that applesauce.....U can always use it in the cake as egg or fat substitute, or simply make the apple bread.

I think I like this colour better than the paler versions. I'd love to have this with some vanilla ice cream! BTW, joy of baking has a super carrot cake recipe that uses applesauce...maybe you want to try it?
