Applesauce

October 22, 2012

We very nearly missed apple-picking season this year.  We went a couple of weeks later than usual and combined with a not so great year for apples, we found ourselves picking on the last available weekend of the year.  The pickings were slim indeed but we managed to find plenty (at a mere 40 cents a pound)!  Needless to say, we’ve been eating a lot of apples around here, including a favorite Fall treat for everyone, most especially the little ones, homemade applesauce!

Homemade Applesauce
Easy & delicious!

1.  Core, peel, and slice your apples.  I usually cut them into eighths.   Fill a 3 quart pan the best you can and call it good.  This recipe is very flexible, so don’t worry too much about exact quantities.

2.  Squirt apples with a bit of lemon juice and pour in about 1/2 C apple cider.  Sprinkle in a bit of cinnamon, if you like.  (We sure do!)

3.  Bring to a boil and then cover and let simmer over low heat.

4.  Apples will get soft and mushy.  I let ours simmer for about an hour and then mush them by hand with a potato masher.  You can certainly puree them if that is your preference but we like ours a little chunky.

Serve and Enjoy!
