Taste of Fall ~ Homemade Applesauce

Does Fall ever get you in the mood to bake or cook?  Well, this is my favorite time of the year for baking and cooking.  I enjoy going apple picking and I love making apple desserts.  I just recently shared a tasty recipe with all of you and if you missed the Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie then be sure to check my previous posts.  If you decide to try the recipe then be rest assured that you won’t be disappointed.  I have received lots of feedback that it is now considered a family favorite.  It can be yours too ~ give it a try!!

Speaking of recipes…. I have yet another one for you all to try.  I have made several batches of homemade applesauce and everyone keeps asking me for my recipe.  It is so easy and very tasty.  Here is what you will need.

~ Homemade Applesauce ~

4-6 apples (peeled, cored, chopped)  3/4 cup water                                                 1/4 cup white sugar                                   1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan.

001

Cover and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until apples are soft (stirring occasionally).

004

Allow to cool and mash with a fork or potato masher.  I myself use a mini food chopper and it works great.

005

Remember ~ the longer you keep it in your chopper the smoother it will be.  I made chunky applesauce last year and loved it, but Cameron was not a fan so I made it smooth this year.  Enjoy it warm or chilled.

The pictures shown contain more then just 4-6 apples.  Feel free to add double the apples, but remember to double all of your other ingredients as well.

Have a blessed day!!      ~ Lisa

I love making applesauce Lisa. The only thing I add different than you do is a pinch of salt a dot of butter and some vanilla. It really brings out the taste.
Now I'm off to look for your apple pie recipe.
