Today was one of the colder, sunnier days of September and it got me craving one of my favorite things to eat during this time which is Æblegrød. Æblegrød or Æblemos is the Danish word for apple sauce and we love to make it during this time of year where we can go pick the apples in our gardens ourselves and enjoy them. One might say it’s just pure HYGGE!
Anyway, Æblegrød is super easy to make so i thought i would share it with you guys on the slight chance that you might want to try it out for yourselves!
Now this is a very loose go-with-the-flow type recipe but i hope you’ll still enjoy it regardless! However, first things first, you’ll need a few things to get started:
- 6 apples
- A peeler or a knife
- A teaspoon
- A tablespoon
- A pot
Start off by peeling the apples and removing the cores. Afterwards cut the apples into small pieces and pour all of them into your pot. Add a tiny bit of water (just enough to cover the bottom of the pot) and pour in 3-5 tbsp of sugar and a tsp of vanilla.
Leave this to boil on very low heat until the apples have become completely soft and the water has disappeared. Be careful not to let it burn!
When it’s finished, pour the sauce into a bowl and leave it to cool down. Once it’s completely cooled, enjoy it with some milk or cream (whichever you prefer) or just eat it on it’s own!
You can also add cinnamon or other spices to the sauce if you want to give it a little extra kick, though i usually prefer it just as it is with a small bit of cream on top. Yum!
And that’s that! Easy, delicious and a super fun thing to do on a cool autumn day!
