Spicy Apple Preserve (蘋果餡)/ Applesauce

When I have lots of apple and can’t finish before it turn soft ( I mean not crunchy ), normally I will make it into apple preserve and keep in the fridge.
I will put it into my home made bread to improve the softness, or use it as filling in my home made bun. Or you can spread it on your toast to make it like jam.
For the meat eater, you can have it along with your pork chop and mash.
Apple Preserve
  1. Apple ( peeled and diced )              6
  2. Sugar                                              5 to 6 tbsp
  3. Fresh lemon juice                           5 tbsp ( adjust the quantity to suit your taste )
  4. Ground cinnamon                           1 tsp
  5. Ground nutmeg                               1 tsp


  • Place a saucepan over a medium to low heat, put prepared apples, sugar and cook about 10 minutes, when the apples start to turn colour, add the other ingredients in and stir it, test the taste to adjust the sugar and lemon juice. When the apple mixture start to thicken, off the heat and let it cool down completely.
  • Prepare a clean and steroid glass jar, and pour the cold apple preserve in it, cover with a layer of cling film and top with a lid. It can keep in the fridge for a month.


  • If you like it hot and spicy, you can add 1/2 tsp of smoked parprika in the preserve. You will surprise about the taste, why not try it to see if you like or not. I will.
