As the old saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Apples are a good source of potassium, folic acid, beta-carotene and vitamin C, and they contain B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and zinc. They also have antioxidants that improve immune function and prevent heart disease and some cancers, and aid in the reduction of high cholesterol and blood sugar. It's reassuring to know that my apple sauce is full of apple goodness.

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes


  • 4 apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp 'speculaaskruiden' (or pumpkin pie spices)
  • 1 tbsp sugar


Mix the ingredients together in a microwave safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for five minutes. Leave to cool slightly and then mash with a wooden spoon.


  • Avoid using metal implements when preparing or dishing up your apple sauce, because the metal causes a reaction that can taint the color and taste.
  • Make your own speculaaskruiden
