The best combination, isn’t it? So, this may be the easiest recipe ever, which anyone with the ability of peeling an apple can attempt. Ingredients are just apples, cinnamon, and water. And the result is a puree full of autumn flavors. It’s no secret that I am biased when it comes to cinnamon, but hey, I’m human after all.
So, let’s do it!
Grab some 8 medium to big apples. This were so pretty!
Peel them and cut them into pieces. The smaller the pieces, the faster it cooks.
Put the apples in a pot, add 700 ml of water and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Mix it well with a spoon so that cinnamon is evenly distributed.
Now, turn on that heat! I am a bit impatient so I put it to maximum heat until it starts to boil, then I lower it to medium heat to cook a bit more. I don’t have a stablished time for cooking. I just wait until the apples are tender enough to be blended with a food processor. For me it takes about 15 minutes.
After this you only have to blend everything with a food processor or similar. It is now when I taste it to see if it sweet enough or it needs help of a bit or sugar/honey/whatever sweetener there is in my kitchen. Don’t worry if the puree is runny, it will thicken when it gets colder.
Now, patiently wait until it cools down, pour it in a sealed container and save it in the fridge. I like to eat it straight out of the fridge, but you can warm it a bit in the microwave if you wish. And if you feel like it, add some vanilla ice-cream and you’ll be in apple-cinammon-vanilla heaven.
Let me know if you try it!
