Make your own Applesauce

I have a recipe in my recipe box for  homemade applesauce that I  have not made in years.  I rememebered it being delicious so I decided to make it to go along with the dinner I made for Todd last night.  Applesauce is so simple & quick to make.  It’s really worth making.

Not the best picture, but I was in a rush to eat it!

Homemade Applesauce

Serves ~4-5

  • 5 Apples–peeled, cored, and chopped (I used a mix of Braeburn & Honey Crispy; really anything you have one hand)
  • little less than a 1/4 cup of sugar
  • cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup water

Add apples, sugar, cinnamon, and water to a medium saucepan.  Cook with lid on over medium-heat for 15-20 minutes, or until the apples soften.  Take off heat and mash the mixture with a potato masher or fork.  You can play with the consistency of your applesauce here, I love chunky applesauce so I like to keep mine fairly chunky.
