Baked Apple Sauce
Condiments and Sauces,
Yields: 2 cups
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 40 min
3 or 4 Macintosh
apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into quarters
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 large or 2 small
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup roasted natural raw walnuts, shelled (optional)
1/4 cup golden raisins (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix together the cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract,
lemon juice, and honey; set aside.
In a large re-sealable plastic bag, place the apple quarters.
Add the spice/honey mixture, reseal the bag, and shake to thoroughly coat the
apples. NOTE: To enhance the flavor, you may marinate for
several hours in the refrigerator or you may proceed "as is."
Place the coated apple quarters on a baking pan or cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 30 to 40 minutes or until tender.
The tip of a knife should easily pierce the apple slice.
When done, remove the apples from the oven and place in a bowl.
Using a potato masher or pronged fork, gently mash the apples
to desired texture of either a chunky or a smooth sauce (your choice).
If desired, add the optional roasted walnuts and raisins.
See below on how to roast walnuts.
Makes approximately 2 cups.
- Place whole or half natural raw walnuts on a
cookie sheet and roast for approximately 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool.
- When the walnuts are cool enough to handle,
place on a sheet of wax paper. Using a mallet or the side of a can, roll over
walnuts to crush them into small pieces; set aside.
