Wrinkly Apple Pie Sauce

25 November 2020

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 😉
