Warm homemade applesauce is added to vanilla ice cream for a super scrumptious treat.
Warm the Applesauce on the stove or in a microwave. Place the ice cream in a dish. Top with the Applesauce, sprinkle with cinnamon and top with whipped cream if desired.
Throw the apples, apple juice and lemon juice into a pan and bring it to the boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat and simmer until the apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Stir through the sugar and mix until melted. Add the cinnamon and stir through.
Purée the mixture in a food processor, blender or food mill. If not using right away, leave to cool and then refrigerate. Yield: 6 to 7 cups.
Cook’s Note: When blending hot liquids, first let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open; this will prevent the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse until smooth.
