500 g (1.1 lb) peeled pumpkin without seeds
400 g (0.9 lb) sour apples
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp (20 g) butter
100 g (3.5 oz) water


Peel the apples, remove cores, stalks, and seeds.

Cut every apple into quarters.

Cut the pumpkin into 1“-2“-side cubes.

Put the all ingredients except the butter into a sauce-pan, pour water, stir, and bring to boil with a low heating.

Boil for about 40 minutes, or more (avoid burning!) under a lid.

After that time, make a puree from apples and pumpkin.

Return the puree into the sauce-pan, and boil for about 20 minutes more without a lid.

Try, if puree is too sour, add more sugar.

Add the butter, and stir well.

Remove the heating, and cool.

Puree is ready to eat.
