Applesauce Time!

It is apple season!
Is there anything better then fresh, homemade, warm from the stove applesauce?! Well, maybe warm cinnamon rolls, but applesauce is certainly much healthier for you.
Have you ever made Homemade Applesauce? It is so simple. Easy as 1- 2-3!
1. Peel, core and chop your apples. It is always fun to use an old fashioned apple peeler, but these apples were too soft to use that method.
2. Put your apples in a saucepan with a little water (about 1/2 cup) and cook on medium heat.
This variety of apple made excellent apple sauce! It cooked down smooth in 20 minutes. I think they were 'Snow' apples. They were from my Grandma's very old tree and so no one is quite sure.
3. After it has cooked down to the consistency you like, add sugar and cinnamon. It all depends on how sweet you like your sauce and how much you like cinnamon. We like ours on the tart side and love cinnamon! I used about 1/3 cup sugar and 3 teaspoons cinnamon.
 
Enjoy your homemade fall treat!
