Homemade Applesauce

Wednesday, September 18, 2013
I told you about how we got a big load of apples and pears Here.  The first thing I did was make two big batches of applesauce.  

It is super easy, and makes your house smell like fall as it simmers away.  Mmmm.  

I've combined a few different recipes to make one that works for me:

15 medium-sized apples (peeled, cored, quartered)
1 1/2 cups apple cider
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
Dash of nutmeg

Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.  Discard the cinnamon sticks and mash (with potato masher) in the pot.  This makes about 4 cups.  You can serve it warm, cold, or freeze it for later.  

Apples are in season so get peeling.  No need to buy GoGo Squeez applesauce for the next few months!
