Kids Cooking -- Homemade Applesauce



I first made this recipe last year, having never made applesauce before.  It's surprisingly easy.  I don't have too much to say about it, so we'll have a short post and a short recipe.  I've doubled the original to make sure there's plenty, because we go through it pretty quickly.

Homemade Applesauce

Serves 5 to 8


Ingredients


8 medium apples (I used Gala and Granny Smith)
1/2 cup sugar, either brown or white. (I usually use a combination of Splenda and sugar)
1 1/2 cups water
Cinnamon (Several shakes)
Peel, core, and cut up the apples into slices.
Put the apples, sugar, cinnamon, and water into a pan.
Cover and simmer at medium heat for 15-20 minutes.
Let the apples cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher.
