Applesauce

Homemade Applesauce is really easy to make. I had a couple apples that were past their prime and needed used. I decided to make some applesauce to go with the pork chops we were having for dinner.

Two apples should give you 1-1/2 to 2 cups of applesauce. Feel free to double or triple the recipe if you want to make more.

Peel, core and chop your apples. Place in a medium saucepan with the water and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat until apples are soft and mush easily. This could take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the apples used.

I add the sugar while mashing. Some apples are sweet and you won’t need to add much, if any sugar. Tart apples will need more sugar. You could use granulated sugar, honey, maple syrup or sugar free sweetener instead of brown sugar if you prefer. For a chunky applesauce use a potato masher or fork to mash. For a smoother sauce use a food chopper or blender.
