Even though the Farmer's Market's will be shutting down soon (at least where I live!), apples are still plentiful. It's amazing how overpriced a little container of applesauce is when you can make 2-4 times that amount with just a bag or bushel of apples. So, here's how to make yummy applesauce WITHOUT all the yucky preservatives :)
-3 pounds of apples
-1/2 cup water
-1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
**It looks like there's a ton of steps because of all the pictures,
but this is actually one of the EASIEST things to make, EVER!**
Remove most or all of the peel.
Cook apples (or steam) over medium heat with water.
Cooking times vary, just keep an eye on it!
Once apples are soft, (you may need to add more water),
mash apples to desired consistency.
*I'm totally cool with semi-chunky applesauce*
Let cool for 10 minutes.
Serve warm or cold!
This is a NO BRAINER to make homemade. It's kind of frightening to see the ingredients in applesauce, when it is so easy to make. This is one of my kids favorite things to eat, so having a lot is fine by me!
