Today is Tuesday and that means two things… a very early a.m. run with B and a trip to the farmer’s market to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies. Today is a crisp, gorgeous fall day and I couldn’t resist making some homemade applesauce. My youngest daughter LOVES applesauce and can’t get enough of homemade version.
If you’ve never made homemade applesauce, it is so easy. You don’t need to add any sugar to it as apples are already sweet enough. Give this recipe a try – I know you’ll love it as much as we do.
8 large apples (softer apples are better for applesauce) I used Winesap today or 12 smaller sized apples – cored, peeled and chopped into medium sized pieces
1.5 cups of water
In a medium sauce pan add the apples and the water. Cover and bring to a boil. After about 5 minutes of cooking, remove the lid and check if the apples are soft enough to mash. If not, cover and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until you reach the desired “softness”. You can either you a hand masher or a immersion blender and blend the apples into your sauce. Add the cinnamon (your preference to how much you like). I added 1 tablespoon.
Let cool and store in a tupperware container for about 2 weeks.
