How to Make Apple Puree
Apple puree is a mashed mass of fresh apples with or without added sugar. It is often used as baby food, and in North America and some European countries, it’s served as a sauce for meat, poultry, or vegetables. Alternatively, apple puree can be used as a filling for sweet pies.

2 pounds of fresh apples
A medium-sized saucepan

The process of cooking
1. Rinse the apples under running water, peel them, core them, and cut them into cubes.
2. Put them in the saucepan, pour in some water at a ratio of 1:3, and place it on the stove.
3. Bring the water to a boil. Then reduce the heat, cover the saucepan with a lid, and cook the apples for 25 to 30 minutes.
Check if the apples are ready from time to time by slightly piercing one apple cube with a knife. If it’s soft enough, turn off the heat. If it’s still hard, let the apples simmer for a few more minutes.
4. Remove the saucepan from the stove, drain the water, and mash the apples thoroughly.
5. Your apple puree is ready!
You can use it as baby food, filling for sweet cake, or sauce for meat, poultry, or vegetable dishes. You can add mint or cinnamon to the puree for the 2 latter options.
