Recipe: Fermented Apple Sauce

Fermented Apple Sauce, cultured apple sauce



Options for starter:


  1. Wash, core and peel the apples
  2. Cut into pieces and place in the Vitamix
  3. Add the liquid whey or starter
  4. Add the salt and cinnamon
  5. Cover and turn on the Vitamix for only a few seconds
  6. Use the plunger to get the apples mixed in quickly
  7. You don’t want to liquify the apples so move quickly or pulse the blender
  8. Be sure all the ingredients are mixed together
  9. Pour into glass quart jars
  10. Pour enough whey or culture starter on top to cover the apple sauce and create a seal
  11. Cover with a lid
  12. Place in a dark cabinet for 1 day (maybe 2 if your house is cold)
  13. Check this every day because fruit cultures will become alcoholic if left too long – you will taste and smell alcohol
  14. I check mine after 2 days and most of the time it is ready – then refrigerate
  15. When it is warm (70º) I would leave it one day
  16. This should yield about a quart and a cup depending upon the size of the apples
  17. This applesauce will stay fresh in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 weeks which is much longer than regular apple sauce
