For many of my American friends, who I have joined again for this month’s Creative Blog Hop, it’s almost time for Thanksgiving! So even though I’m on the other side of the world, in Australia, I wanted to be able to celebrate with them too.
Dear friends who I have met through starting this very blog. We have never physically met but we chit chat daily and I feel like they live just down the street. It’s so AWESOME and something that I’m truly thankful for. So today I’m sharing a yummy Homemade Rustic Apple Sauce that I hope will make it to your Thanksgiving or Christmas table for your family and friends to enjoy.
Homemade Rustic Apple Sauce: The Perfect Side
There is nothing better than your family and friends gathering around for meal together. But don’t get me wrong our family is definitely not perfect.
Like this one time… when hubby and I got engaged! We threw a big family gathering to celebrate our happy news! My dad thought that he would try and be Austin Powers when it came to his speech and pretty well much offended ALL of my hubby’s family!!
Looking back now it was pretty hilarious but at the time I just wanted the world to open up and swallow me!! But after 40 something something years of being around my dad and his joking fun ways you realise he just loves having all of his family together and creating lots happy memories!
I think a smidge of my dad has rubbed off on me. Not the Austin Power part!!! But the love of cooking up a storm for my family and friends.
Homemade Rustic Apple Sauce is something I have been making for many years for our family for Christmas. It’s a nice easy recipe which can also be made a few days ahead and frozen. I’m sure it will be yummy for Thanksgiving too.
|Prep Time||10 minutes|
|Cook Time||15 minutes|
- Peel, core and thickly slice your apples.
- Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
- Pop in your apples and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until tender and caramelised.
- Drizzel in your apple cider. Cook for one to minutes until the liquid has reduced.
- Stir in the sage leaves. Then transfer to your serving bowl.
All measurements are in Australian Metric.
