What you will need
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup honey
a pinch of salt
How to cook
Melt the butter
Peel the apples and cut them in half through the stem and core.
Remove core and stem
Remove the core. A small spoon is perfect for this task, just scoop around the seeds. Slice out the stem.
Slice into wedges, then arrange the wedges and cut in the opposite direction to dice.
Juice the lemon into the apples.
A pinch of salt
Stir up all of the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 400ºF
Transfer to baking dish
Arrange the apples in a parchment-lined baking dish.
Bake for 40 minutes
Bake until apples are soft. It should take around 40 minutes, depending on the size of your apple chunks.
You can now mash or chop the roasted apples to make your applesauce. My apples were a little too firm to mash, so I chopped them. I prefer chopping anyway because the texture is great.
