    Golden Applesauce

    This isn’t your usual applesauce. The mighty McIntosh is infused with pinches of heady saffron and perfumy star anise. The deep orange saffron threads give the sauce a light golden glow.

    1/2 cup (125 mL) water or apple juice
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) saffron threads
    2 star anise
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) butter
    6 McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped
    1 to 3 tsp (5 to 15 mL) honey

    In large saucepan, stir water or juice with saffron, star anise, and butter. Add coarsely chopped apples. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, just until apples are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp (5 mL) honey. Mash to desired consistency. Taste and add more honey, if needed. Makes 3 cups (750 mL).
