We went apple-picking a couple of weekends ago (among other crazy events!) and got sooo many delicious apples! I have great plans for these, including apple bread and apple crisp, however we have lots of birthday cake leftover so the last thing we needed was more desserts. So I started with applesauce. Super easy.
Makes 1 jar/ 4 -5 servings
5 -6 apples
1) Core, peel, and slice all apples. Place in a large pot and cover half with water (about two cups). Sprinkle with cinnamon to taste.
2) Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 30 - 40 minutes or until apples have broken down and you can easily mash them with a spoon.
3) For smoother applesauce, use a mixing wand or food processor and pulse until desired smoothness.
4) Serve warm or cold with cinnamon and/or brown sugar. Mmmmm.
