Recipe by COOKGIRl
Another variation of applesauce using Granny Smiths. An Asian/Australian/English confluence, this version is sweeter and more like an applesauce and less like a chutney in comparison to my other Granny Smith applesauce recipe. A Cookgirl Original dedicated to my Aussie friends.
- 1 lb granny smith apple
- 1 teaspoon english lavender, crushed to a fine powder
- 1 -2 teaspoon grated galangal (substitute fresh ginger if galangal unavailable)
- 1 dash salt
- 1⁄4 cup apple cider
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup, to taste
