Recipe 85: Always because i’m still trying to eat light an loose the weight tooken in Easter, this week i give you another recipe to eat meat and vegetable with a little twist. This time is even easier than the previous recipe and it’s all about a sauce to serve with turkey or pork: Apple Sauce.
Probably most of you already tried this sweet and sour combination before, but here is my mum’s recipe and i can tell you it’s all a new discovering.
Ingredients for 3 people: 3 apples (i used the golden delicious), 2-3 spoons of sugar, a lemon and some nutmeg.
Wash the three apples, take off the skin, the seed and the center. Cut them in little piece and put them in a saucepan.
Add the sugar, a bit of nutmeg, and the grated zest of half a lemon. Be careful to take just the yellow of the lemon because the white it can be sour.
Mix it all and pour some water, but just enough to cover all the apples. If then this is not enough to cook them well, you can always add more water later. Leave it cook for half an hour on a low fire.
When the apples will be cooked you will be able to mash them and the mix it will reach the consistency of jam. Take everything off the fire and add the juice of half a lemon.
Mix again all and serve it with the meat. The contrast of a very sweet sauce with the salty meat will be perfect.
PS. Mamy ti avevo detto che avevo fatto la salsa e che mi sembrava troppo dolce. Invece poi quando l’abbiamo provata con la carne, non sai che buona! Non stonava per niente cosi dolce. Il contrasto era buonissimo ed il piatto in se’ e’ molto delicato.Proprio cio’ che volevo!
