Basic Apple Sauce
sauce veg
Ideal for your roast pork. Possibly your roast goose.
Traditionally you would use a cooking apple like a Bramley, which might require additional sugar. But dessert apples also work.

Serves 4

Peel and core the apple and cut into chunks. Cook in enough water to cover with the lemon zest if using until the apple is soft. You may need to add a little sugar depending on the acidity of your apples.
Blend or mash to a purée.
Whisk in a few cubes of cold butter to enrich before serving.
You might consider including lemon juice or zest.
Adding a little mint or mint jelly at the end is also quite nice.
