Better yet: have you ever tasted homemade applesauce?
Three words: Oh. My. Goodness.
I hope you try this recipe. It’s super simple to make and makes a wonderfully cinnamon-flavored chunky applesauce you won’t soon forget.
In fact, it’s so easy you may never buy canned applesauce again.
- 5-6 small to medium apples peeled, cored and quartered
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- In a large pot or dutch oven, heat all the ingredients over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until apples are soft enough to mash.
- Using a masher or just a fork, gently mash the apples. They should pretty much fall apart on their own. Mash to desired consistency. Cool in the refrigerator prior to serving.
