Joyous ways with JOYA® apple purée - Kids lollies

Make the most of JOYA® apples while they are in season. Prepare a batch or two of this apple purée to make special treats now or to freeze for later. A great way to make use of any bruised or overripe fruit so that none of these delicious apples go to waste.

  1. Place all the ingredients in a pot and bring to the boil over medium heat.
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer with a lid for 15 minutes or until the apples are cooked. Remove cinnamon stick.
  3. Blend apples to a purée with a stick blender or in a food processor – it makes quite a thick purée.
  4. Allow purée to cool down and prepare any of the ideas below. Or freeze for later use. Small cubes of apple purée are perfect to use in smoothies or to add sweetness to a mince mixture, any tomato-based sauces or one-pot dishes.
