4 large cooking apples
juice of 1 lemon
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Peel and core the apples and roughly chop the apples. Place them in a saucepan with the lemon juice, cloves and cinnamon. Simmer until they are soft, around 10-15 minutes. Add a dash of water if necessary. Stir in the butter and mash to your desired consistency.
Apple sauce recipes vary throughout the land. Many do not include the cloves and cinnamon, but this reduces the scope of the sauce to stimulate digestion by removing its aromatic components.
Others like to add honey, or more often sugar. This however diminishes the sourness of the sauce. Since pork is particularly hard to digest the sourness counts, so add the sweetness to taste and be a bit brave! Otherwise, some types of apple are sweeter than others, a much healthier option.
