{Recipe} Homemade Applesauce

I promised some apple recipes and this one couldn't be easier. Start with a few pounds of apples. I don't have exact amounts. Just core, peel and chop until you've had enough of that.

I used this apple corer that was kind of fun. 

It leaves the apples looking like this.
After the apples are chopped up and in a pot, you add about 1/2- 1 cup of apple cider, some cinnamon sticks and lemon zest from one lemon. The lemon really brings out the flavor. I used four cinnamon sticks and it was very cinnamon-y but we like it that way. Use more or less depending on your taste.

Put it all together in the pot and cook on low for about 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When the apples get soft and start falling apart, they are ready to mash. I use a potato masher. We like a chunky applesauce(remove the cinnamon sticks first).

Serve hot with some vanilla-gilding-the-lily-icecream or store in the fridge for a cold treat.

We too have been apple picking. I LOVE homeade applesauce...chunky just like yours.

I found a great fresh apple muffin recipe that we made in addition to apple jelly. It will be posted this month.
