Apfelmus, Apple Sauce, Apple purée, Appelmoes – Baby Applesauce. Inspired by the Dutch I live with. This is incredibly easy, delicious and humble taste to anything you have mood for. The Dutch love it with any kind of potatoes: boiled, sautéed or fried, accompanied by a nice piece of a burger or meatballs. If you have mood for a sweet go, mix it with some nice vanilla dessert or yogurt.
Apple Sauce is also a very good fix for digestion problems, calms your stomach and nerves down. And let me tell you, lightens the room and brings up the Christmas spirit in your homes. Enjoy and Snack with me!
Ideal for babies from 6 months plus, especially when you exclude the extra sugar. You can even mix it with the porridge, and success is guaranteed.
