Apple Puree Vegan Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 10 medium sized Alkmene apples
  • 2 tsp of ground cinnamon (can be replaced with some other sweet spices)
  • 10 tbsp of brown sugar (you can add more or less, depends on your taste)
  • Water to cook the apples

Preparation:

This will give you enough puree for a medium sized jar. If you need more, or less, simply adjust the ingredients. And if you want that extra apple flavor, add few drops of apple extract.

Wash and peel the apples. Cut into quarters and remove the core. Place them in a large pot and pour enough water to cover them (10 cups shound do the job). Bring them to a boiling point and keep cooking until soft. Stir occasionally.

After about 20 minutes, remove from the heat and drain. Allow it to cool for a while and mash with a fork or even better with an electric mixer.

The puree has to stay soft and smooth. You don’t want some apple pieces in it. This is why you should always use the electric mixer. You just can’t get that puree consistency with fork.

Keep your puree in a jar with tight lid. It has to be in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!
