Homemade Applesauce

When the kids asked what was for dinner a few nights ago, I had to chuckle as I pulled out the good old, "pork chaaawps and applesauce" response.

Even better, our house smelled warm and dreamy as I made homemade applesauce.  This recipe will seem too easy to taste good, but don't fret, it was great!

  • 4-5 apples, peeled and cored
  • teaspoon of cinnamon (or more if you really like it spicy)
  • 1/4 white sugar
  • 3/4 cup water

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer on stove top for 30 to 40 minutes (or until apples are soft).  Mash apples with a potato masher or food processor until applesauce reaches your desired consistency. 

*I used the good old potato masher, but I think next time I'll use my food processor.  Just be sure not to over do it if you like your applesauce a little on the chunkier side : )
