{Baking with Betty} Nannie's Homemade Applesauce

Homemade Applesauce

Serves 4-6, great for any meal


Ingredients:

4+ good sized apples, at least one should be granny smith
water
scoop of sugar
cinnamon to taste


Directions:


  1. Wash, peel, core, and chunk apples.
  2. Place in saucepan, add "just a little bit of water" (no more than a quarter of an inch).
  3. Cover, and cook on medium heat until fork tender.
  4. Use a potato masher to mush to desired texture.
  5. Add a scoop of sugar and cinnamon to taste. Stir.
  6. Serve warm with dinner, and great refrigerated for breakfast, lunch or dinner the next day.
  7. Store in an air tight container for 2-3 days.
If you want to use some for baby food, remove apples before adding sugar and cinnamon and blend until smooth, adding water until desired consistency is achieved. 

Boom.

Dinner for the whole family.

Seriously, y'all, it's that easy AND delicious!  The fresh taste is worth the 10 minutes of preparation. And the best part is that its so low maintenance that you can be making a dozen other things at the same thing and you really can't mess this up :)

Thanks to my grandmother for this great family recipe!
