Homemade Applesauce

{adapted from Carrie’s Sweet Life}

Ingredients:

about 4 cups of peeled, cored, and chopped apples ~ I usually use 6 small apples

3/4 cups water

1/4 cup Splenda {or regular white sugar}

1 tsp cinnamon ~ or to taste

pinch salt

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan.  Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apples are soft {usually 15 minutes does the trick}.  Mash with potato masher or blend with an immersion blender to your desired smoothness/chunkiness.  Allow to cool down and serve or refrigerate.

Makes about 2.5 cups prepared, so feel free to double or triple as needed.  It is the perfect amount for our family of 2 though.

    I love homemade applesauce! My mom used to can it, but I’m not that adventurous? Hard-working? I usually just make enough for a family meal and I make it in the crock pot.
