I used unpeeled apples in my apple sauce because I love the small red speckles of colour the peel gives. Additionally, much of the healthy nutrients and fibres of apples are concentrated to the peel. But if you prefer a smoother apple sauce, the apples may of course be peeled. In this recipe the apple sauce is sweetened with dates instead of sugar, and vanilla and a little lime juice makes it taste incredible. The lime juice also helps to keep the apples from going brown. Enjoy!
Raw Apple Sauce
Juice of 1/2 lime
5 fresh dates (pitted)
1 tsp vanilla powder
1. Peel the apples if you prefer. Core them.
2. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until the apple sauce is as smooth as possible. Stop the processor and scrape down the sides a few times if necessary.
3. Store in a jar in the fridge, but be aware that it it not preserved. Eat within a few days or freeze.
