I’m not a huge apple fan to eat just as is, I do buy them in the hope that I’ll change my ways and just start eating them as a snack, and it goes well for the first few but somehow I’m always left with a single wrinkly apple which you just can’t eat anymore.
Hating to waste food I always try and make something with my old-ish fruit, so yesterday I made a quick apple caramel sauce with a touch of cinnamon, sea salt and a few raisins. Served on a small scoop of vanilla ice-cream, with whipped cream and toasted almond shavings, it was like we were eating warm apple pie! I think this might be one of my best non-food-waste dishes so far. Next time I’ll save it for the weekend and not for a Tuesday 😉
Wrinkly Apple Pie Sauce
- 1 (wrinkly) apple, peeled and cubed (± 1cm cubes)
- 1 tbsp light brown sugar
- Small handful raisins (optional)
- 1 knob butter
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of cinnamon
- To serve:
- Vanilla ice-cream
- Almond shavings, toasted
- Whipped dream
Start by melting a small knob of butter in a sauce pan, when melted add 1 tbsp of light brown sugar and let it dissolve on medium heat.
When starting to bubble around the edges, add the cubed apple pieces and a small handful of raisins.
Toss to coat with the caramel sauce and sauté for about 5-7 minutes until apple starts to get a bit mushy.
Take of the heat and mix through some sea salt and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Voila!
