This is a simple apple sauce that is perfect to add to vegetable roasts and nut roasts.
450g (1 lb) of apples
4 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons of sugar
Peel and core the apples, then cut them into smallish pieces. Put the apple pieces, water, sugar and butter into a medium-sized heavy-based saucepan and cook gently, with a lid on the saucepan, until the apples are soft. Season with a little sea salt, and mash the mixture slightly with a wooden spoon, if necessary, to break up the apple.
If you prefer a smooth consistency you can sieve/liquidize.
