Vanilla Apple Sauce

After labour increasing your carb in take will help to replenish your muscles and liver. Adding a good dose of fresh fruit to your diet will help you keep up your energy levels, add roughage to your diet to help with constipation and provide you with those carbs to help your muscles tighten and go back to their pre-pregnancy shapes and sizes.

This Vanilla Apple Sauce is a tasty, fresh and preservative free way to help you get in your servings of fruit each day.

Ingredients

10 apples – a mix of different kinds, the sweeter the better
1 TBSP lemon juice
2 TSP vanilla
1/4 cup sugar *taste before adding, you may not need it
1/2 TSP cinnamon
 
Peel, core and chop apples into slices. Add them to a large pot filled with 1 inch of water covering the bottom.

Add lemon juice and vanilla and bring to a boil. Once it has reached a boil, reduce heat to medium and continue to simmer. Cook for approximately 20 minutes until apples are soft enough to mash with a potato masher. Mash apples, leaving some chunks. If you prefer a smoother sauce you can transfer to a blender and then return it to the pot after you have pureed it. Add sugar 1/4 cup at a time until sauce is sweetened to you liking. If you use sweet enough apples (ie No Granny Smiths) you may not need any sugar at all.
 
Stir in cinnamon and transfer into sterile, heated jars or into a plastic container for the fridge.
 
Makes 1.5 L
