Whether you want to add a sweet and smokey flavour to a dessert, or have an impressive homemade apple sauce to serve with slow roasted pork or beef, this recipe has you covered!



5 Granny Smith or Pink Lady apples
50g unsalted butter
2 tbls dark muscavado sugar
1 tsp sea salt


  1. Place whole apples with melted butter in the oven at 180c for 20 mins
  2. Apples should still be whole but with skin broken and cooked through
  3. On a hot grill, place a wire rack on top and let it heat for 5 mins
  4. Place the apples whole on the grill, turning every couple of mins to get a char on the skin. Go quite dark as this will add colour and flavour to your sauce
  5. Save the butter and cooking juices from the apples, you will need this for the next step.
  6. In a food blender, place the apples (you will need to cut the apples into quarters) butter and juices from the oven, along with the dark muscavado and sea salt
  7. Blend the sauce into a smooth texture, until it looks velvety
  8. Scoop into a sealable container until ready to serve. The sauce will last in the fridge for up to 7 days
