I have 2 apple trees in my back yards, they are the green type of apples that are a little bit on the sour side. Not the very best to eat but great for cooking and definitely can't get more organic than that! My trees are now in full bloom with heaps of apples, so I better start finding ideas on what to do with them and get cooking!
I thought I would start with an applesauce, since it's something everyone has eaten in their life and it usually brings back childhood memories... except this is more of a "adult version" with Grand Marnier liquor!
You can serve it as is, with vegan ice cream or as a condiment to any of your meal.
You might want to double the recipe too. This is yummy stuff... it will be gone pretty fast!
5 apples, cored, peeled, and chopped
2 tbsp grand marnier liquor
3/4 cup filtered water
1 tsp lime juice
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until apples become very tender, about 20-25 minutes.
Remove from heat. Mash with potato masher until liquid and apples come together in a nice puree.
Makes 2 large or 4 small servings.
