Nutritional values

In this recipe, the apples are preserved and ready to use whenever you desire. Apples contain the soluble fiber pectin, which help lower cholesterol levels and normalise sugar metabolism.

If you want to eat the applesauce right away, do not fill it into glasses, but let it cool down a little in a bowl. You can flavor the applesauce to your taste with spices such as cinnamon, ginger, cardamom or star anise. The basic recipe has no added sweetener at all, so you can cook some coconut blossom sugar with it or sweeten it with honey afterwards.
