Applesauce

Homemade Applesauce is really easy to make. I had a couple of apples that were past their prime and needed to be used. I made 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. Depending on the apples used, this could take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes.

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 chunky applesauce use a potato masher or fork to mash. For a smoother sauce use a food chopper or blender.
