Ever have a bunch of apples, on the verge of going bad that you're not quite sure what to do with? Or they're just brown spotted that no one will eat? Don't throw them out! Turn them into applesauce! There's nothing yummier than hot, homemade, delicious applesauce that's a winner for all ages.
Best part is, it's super simple. Four easy ingredients and you have a delicious snack or dessert.
Apples, cubed- however many you choose/have
Water (enough to cover 1/3rd of the apples)
Honey (to taste)
A dash of cinnamon
Peel and cube the apples and put into a deep pan or pot. Fill the pot with enough water to cover a third of the apples.
Drizzle honey (you can always add more later) and cinnamon. Give it a good mix, cover the pot and let it come to a boil. Once it's boiled, give it another mix, lower the flame and allow the apples to simmer and soften. This usually takes between a half-hour and forty minutes, but may need longer if you are using more apples. Once you can easily mush your apple cubes with a fork or the back of a spoon, it's ready. If you like chunky applesauce, you can simply mush and mix the apples with a fork. If you like fine applesauce you can blend it with an immersion blender or food processor and you're ready to go!
This is the easiest, most delicious snack that has none of the preservatives, all the flavor. You can put it on your latkes (yay Chanukah is just around the corner!!) or just enjoy it as is. Don't throw out old apples, get creative!!
