Compote Crue / Raw AppleSauce

C’est le temps de la pomme et nous devons profiter de chaque saison pour se nourrir des légumes, plantes et fruits en saison. Cette année, Noah Jade et moi sommes allé à un nouveau verger biologique. La saison de cueillette est courte là, mais c’est un site extraordinaire. Je vous encourage d’aller faire un tour!

Avec ces belles pommes que nous mangeons depuis la fin de semaine passée, j’ai aussi fait de la compote crue et cuite (car Noah Jade aime bien en manger un peu de cuite le matin), du jus, des tartes (santés), et quelques autres items.

Voici deux belles recettes supers simples pour la compote :

3 grosses pommes,
30 ml d’eau pure


Couper les pommes en gros cubes en prenant le soin d’enlever le cœur avant. Garder la pelure. Déposer tous les cubes et l’eau pure dans une casserole et apporter à ébullition. Baisser le feu pour permettre aux pommes de ramollir sans bruler. Le temps de cuisson va varier selon le type de pommes. Lorsque les pommes se décomposent facilement à l’aide d’une fourchette, c’est cuit. Laisser le tout reposer et se refroidir avant de passer au Vitamix (ou autres malaxeurs). Dégustez!

200 grammes de pommes,
20 grammes de dates,
10 grammes de baies de goji,
15 ml de sirop d’agave (optionnelle),
5 ml de jus de citron


Couper les pommes en gros cubes en prenant le soin d’enlever le cœur avant. Garder la pelure. Déposer tous les ingrédients dans un Vitamix ou autres mélangeurs à haute vitesse jusqu’à ce que la texture soit lisse. Savourez!


It’s apple season once again and it is important to take full advantage of it to feed ourselves with in season vegetables, plants and fruits. This year, Noah Jade and I went to a new biological orchard. The picking season is short there, but it is an extraordinary place. I encourage you to go and tour the place.

With these beautiful apples, which we have been eating since last weekend, I also made some raw and cooked applesauce (because Noah Jade likes to eat it a little cooked applesauce in the morning), some juice, tarts (healthy ones), and a few other items.

Here are two beautiful, simple great recipes for applesauce:

3 big apples,
30 ml of pure water


Carefully remove the heart and cut apples into chunks. Keep the peel. Put all the apple chunks and pure water in a pot and bring to a boil. Lower the temperature to allow the apples to soften without burning. The cooking time is going to vary according to the type of apples you are using. When apples decompose easily with a fork, it is done. Let the apples sit to cool before blending in the Vitamix (or other blender). Enjoy!

200 grams of apples,
20 grams dates,
10 grams of Goji berries,
15 ml of agave syrup of agave (optional),
5 ml of lemon juice


Carefully remove the heart and cut apples into chunks. Keep the peel. Put all the ingredients in the Vitamix or other blender and blend on high until the texture is smooth.
