I learned to make yummy organic apple sauce from reading macrobiotic cookbooks, so this recipe is also very healthy!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 3-5 Apples - I use organic "pink lady" apples, look for one with a robust or strong flavor.
- 1/2 Ume Plum (pitted) OR pinch of Sea Salt
That's it! Simply cut up the apples into a few slices each (taking out the core/seeds), you can choose whether to leave the peelings on or not. I cook the peeling because it adds to the flavor and they taste really good simmered down- but if the texture might weird you out don't include the skins. Add the ume plum (or pinch of salt) in the pot with the cut up apples, then add filtered/spring water that covers 3/4 the way up the apple mountain. Bring to a boil, and then let it cook on medium low for 1-3 hours.
If you keep on cooking longer on a higher temperature you can make apple butter, which is a very dark brown apple treat.
YAY! yum yum yum. Macrobiotic, gluten free, vegan and organic!
