Very simple apple sauce recipe. Full flavour accompaniment to go with a vegetarian roast dinner.
Peel, core and thinly slice the apples. Zest the lemon.
Put the apples into a pan with the water and lemon zest. Cover with a lid and cook on a very low heat for about 10 mins, until they are soft and mushy.
Remove from the heat and thoroughly stir in the butter and sugar.
Allow to cool and its ready to serve.
You can cook this up in larger batches and can into suitable jars. Follow the canning/jar process properly, keep the jars in the dark and cool and your apple sauce can last a year or more.
