Raw Apple Sauce

I really love our Swedish apples in the autumn and winter. Perfect for snacking at work or in warming apple pies. I also love this apple sauce which is so incredibly easy to make as it requires no cooking at all. It tastes delicious as a topping for porridge or muesli, and I've even eaten it like a compote with a little oat milk. 

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 

1 jar

6-8 apples
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.
