Yesterday marks my first attempt at making homemade applesauce,* and it went WAY easier than I anticipated. I didn’t even (really) use a recipe!
- Core the apples.
- Peel the apples.
- Quarter the apples.
- Eat random bits here and there.
- Dump all the apple pieces into a large heavy pot.
- Put two fingers of water in the bottom.
- Cover and boil for 15-20 minutes.
- Stir them up, when they fall completely apart they’re ready.
- Add some cinnamon and stir again.
[Secret last step: add a little sugar if the sauce is too bland.]
- EAT IT!! Or can it. Or freeze it. Or give it away as gifts.
So easy right? Right. And here I thought I could never be *that* domestic! The best part is that my kids knew what it was even before it was done, and they were positively clamoring to get their hands on it. I kept having to say, “It’s too hot to eat, we have to wait for it to cool down. It’s too hot…” Boy were they happy when I finally let them at it!
What fall projects/recipes/traditions do you do with your family? Especially ones involving cinnamon? I’m foreseeing hot cider and pie experiments in my near future… MmMmMmMm. ❤ Fall. ❤
*Note: It was also my first go at food photography… didn’t go half bad if I say so myself! And I do.
