    Hi Daisy

    I'm sure BL will answer you soon, but if I want to make apple sauce I usually just peel some cooking apples, core them, chop them up roughly, put them in a pyrex bowl with sweetener if you want, cover it with cling film, pierce it a couple of times to let the steam escape, then ZAP in the microwave for a few minutes until they go mushy. Beat to a puree with a wooden spoon or use a stick blender.
    Voila - pure apple sauce.
    Altenatively, core the apples, leave the skin on but score around the middle.
    Bake in the oven in a pan with an inch or so of water, or cook in the mictowave until soft, then sieve the lot, separates the skin from the pulp.

    I often just keep a bowl of it in the fridge to have with jelly, greek no fat yogurt or both. I often add cinnamon and sometimes I put a few cranberries in too.
    YUM YUM:mad::mad::mad::mad::greenapple::greenapple::greenapple::greenapple::greenapple:

    Yeah, I do mine much the same, but in a pan on the stove with some cinnamon and spice, sweetner - I use the Splenda Brown SUgar if I have it to hand....and just simmer till it turns soft and then give it a coarse grin with my whizzer, and chill it.

    Its good for all sorts - nice with roast meat too. :)

    Yummmm yum. :)

    Daisy! I bought a box of Graham Crackers in America!! :D

    Still sealed though! ;)

    Thanks Daisy

    I haven't been around for a few weeks.
    l was on holiday from work for 3 weeks and had some emotional stuff to deal with, but starting to feel a bit better now. :cry:
    But, great news - it didn't make me over eat or drink.
    My weight hardly fluctuated.
    My Dad would have said "un-bally-believable"
