I love to eat chunky apple sauce with my pork but after visiting the supermarket I was disappointed to learn they only sold smooth apple sauce that reminds me of baby food, yuck. Thank God for ideas and creativity, I was able to use the Granny Smith apples I already had at home to make my own delicious chunky apple sauce.
I personally like my apple sauce to taste like real apples without the preservatives or food colourings you find in most jars at the supermarket. This simple and easy recipe will taste great with your roast pork, pork chops, pork fillets and don't forget the crackling - you can't eat pork crackling without the apple sauce. You can even eat this recipe on its own, as they say get some pork on your fork with real apple sauce.
Preparation time – 5 minutes (Serves 2-4 people depending on how much apple sauce you like)
3 Granny Smith Apples 2 Teaspoons of butter 2 Teaspoons of sugar
1. Peel the granny smith apples and slice them into thin pieces.
5. Serve the apple sauce immediately with your choice of pork and roast vegetables.
PLEASE NOTE: If you prefer your apple sauce to be smooth, you can cook the apples for a longer period so the apple consistency begins to break down. Continue to leave the temperature on a low heat to reduce the apples or they will have a tendency to burn very quickly, believe me speeding up the cooking process by turning up the heat will cause you to have burnt apples I had to learn the hard way.
To produce a smooth apple sauce place the apple mixture into a food processor/blender or in a bowl and use a stick mixer to blend until smooth.
IDEA: Slice up some potatoes into thin pieces and brush the potatoes with canola oil, place them on a non-stick oven tray and cook them in the oven for 20-30mins at a temperature of 180C/350F, serve the crispy potatoes as a side dish with your favourite pork and apple sauce.
Why not add some crispy potatoes as a side dish to go with your pork.
