Rooibos Applesauce

September 23, 2014


Earthy notes of rooibos tea combine with sweet, crisp apples and pears in this take on a traditional applesauce. Sweetened with honey, it’s a natural snack, side dish or dessert your family will love!

Adapted from Arborteas.com


  • Peeled and Cored Mixed Apples – Approx. 1/4 of a bushel
  • Approximately 6 tsp. flavored rooibos of choice
  • 2 Bosc (or similar pear) peeled and cored
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • Honey
  • Vanilla
  • Large stock pot
  • Potato masher or hand blender (depending on texture you prefer)
  • Water bath and canning supplies (optional)

Yields Approx. 4 Quarts


  1. Brew 4 cups of flavored rooibos. This needs to be strong. Brew for 20 min.
  2. Peel, core and cut apples and pears into 1-2 inch cubes
  3. Combine rooibos, pears, and apples in stock pot. Cover and cook on high heat for approx. 15 min. (careful to stir so it will not boil over). Remove lid and continue to stir. Use a potato masher to help break down the apples. If you like a chunkier sauce a potato masher works, if you like a thinner sauce use a hand blender. Continue to cook the mixture down to the consistency you prefer for applesauce. On high heat for a thicker sauce it can take 45 minutes, stirring often, to prevent burning.
  4. Once applesauce is the consistency you prefer, take a tablespoon full and set aside to cool in order to taste. Then add honey to sweeten to taste. Start in 1/4 cup increments! When using Vanilla Rooibos, I put 2 tbsp. of vanilla and 1/2 cup of honey and the applesauce tastes like cream soda!
  5. Preserve as you wish – applesauce will freeze, it can also be hot water bath canned. Let cool if you are going to eat right away and enjoy!!!

A Standard of Transparency

The tea market and the industry have made it clear that transparency is the way of the future – but what is transparency? I have been building a culture of transparency in the agriculture supply chain since 2010. At first I was a lone ranger; but now I see almost … Continue reading

At the Tea Table with Actress Andrea Bang of Kim’s Convenience

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
