Have Apples? Make Apple Sauce!


Whether you serve it next to the classic pork chop, stir it into oat meal or eat it straight out of the bowl watching television, life's good when you have homemade apple sauce.  It is so simple to make. Try this recipe and you'll never want it from a jar again.

Apple Sauce



Prep time 10-15 minutes
Cook time 15-20 minutes
Total time 25-35 minutes

Yields: Approximately 2 cups

Ingredients:

8 Medium baking/cooking apples (we use pink lady)           
½ Cup Water
¼ Cup light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
½ Teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ Teaspoon salt


Directions:

Peel, core and cut apples into small chunks.

Place apples with the remainder of the ingredients in a medium size sauce pan. 

Heat on high until mixture comes to a boil.  Then reduce heat, cover pan and simmer 15-20 minutes over medium heat stirring occasionally until apples are soft enough to mash.

Mash apple mixture with a fork or potato masher.   For a smoother consistency use an immersion blender.

Enjoy homemade apple sauce warm, at room temperature or chilled.  Store in refrigerator.  This recipe freezes easily and lasts up to one year in the freezer.
