Ready in: 40 minutes
Complexity: very easy
- 12 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 fresh mint leaves (optional)
In a heavy-bottomed 4-quart saucepan, combine the apples, raisins, water, and mint leaves.
Cover and cook over low heat for 30 minutes, adding more water as needed to maintain desired thickness and to avoid sticking.
Remove from the heat and blend in a food processor until smooth. If you desire an even smoother texture, press through a fine strainer.
Variation: Add 1 tsp. cinnamon and/or 1/2 tsp. nutmeg once blended.
