With the right apples, you will need neither water nor sugar to create a light, fluffy, buttery apple sauce. Serve with roast pork, cold ham, or plain old grilled sausages.


  • 4 granny smith apples
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ tsp ground nutme


Peel and core apples, and cut into slices. Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add apple and cook gently, covered, shaking the pan occasionally. Remove from heat when the apple collapses, as it virtually implodes into a sauce. Add nutmeg and stir lightly. Serve warm or cold.
