But home made applesauce?... well that's a horse of a different color!
This is the basic applesauce recipe. I have made a few changes for personal preference. This time I used Gala apples but I want to do a batch of honeycrisps next. Also, I like to use cane sugar as apposed to white sugar.. no real reason I'm just a big fan of can sugar... ok a HUGE fan. Experiment with different apples and different numbers of apples to find your perfect sauce. Oh and we add quite a bit of cinnamon in this house ;)
After I cook the apples I change them over to a cool pot or bowl and pass it over to my pro-masher
He was happily mashing away when someone else wanted in on the fun.
They worked up quite an appetite. The little chefs paired it with peanut butter and honey sandwiches.
I may have to invest in a bushel or 2 of apples because they may never eat the canned stuff again! And neither will you ;) If you try it let me know what tweaks you make and how you like it.
Have a fabulous day.
