Can you recommend any particular brands of unsweetened applesauce that you can buy in the UK please – and which shop? Seems hard to get hold of – much more of an American type product but so useful as I see it popping up all over the place in healthy recipes

Did it, but didn’t like it. Wonder if the cucumber is even necessary.
