This year I decided to make a roast pork with crackling for the first time. I saw a stovetop recipe for apple cider sauce somewhere and decided to give it a crack in the TMX. Boy am I glad I did, it was so yummy and is definitely one of my staple sauces going forward! This recipe yields enough gravy for 4-6 people, just double the quantity if you’ve got a big group to feed.
1/2 an onion
1 apple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
30g butter or dripping from your roast pork
125ml apple cider
125ml chicken/veggie stock
1 heaped teaspoon honey mustard or Dijon mustard (I used the latter)
1 heaped teaspoon flour (I used wholemeal flour)
90ml thickened cream
– Pop your onion and apple into the TMX bowl and hit Turbo once or twice until you achieve your desired chunkiness (twice was enough for me)
– Add butter/dripping and sauté for 4 mins/100 degrees/speed 1.
– Pour in the apple cider, and boil for 8 mins/100 degrees/speed 1.
– Add stock, mustard, flour and cream, and cook for another 6 mins/100 degrees/speed 1.
