Apple a Day 2: Simple ApPlum sauce a la microwave

This recipe falls under the healthy, yet sweet, cooked, and pureed.  We have all enjoyed it in our lunchboxes, but this is even better.  Since I was cooking for one and only had one apple, I thought there would be less of a risk if the recipe failed.  I used a steampot, but I am sure covering a peeled and diced apple with a few spices and sugar to taste with plastic wrap will also do the trick.  Some websites also mention the ability to mash it with a fork, where I used an immersion blender which was quick and easy.

Simple ApPlum Sauce

Add cinnamon with a dash of honey.  Combine with peeled and diced apple with a little lemon juice for preservation and tang.  I also had a plum and wanted to amp up the color and flavor using a whole diced plum (do not de-skin).

Microwave 7-10 minutes and blend or mash to your liking.

This is great straight out of the pot as well as in many dishes and batters both sweet and savory.
