The apple madness continues with my favorite, apple sauce.
I was a very picky eater growing up (sorry Mom) and there were many nights when I would skip out on the entrée, the vegetable and basically everything on my plate and eat a bowl full of warm homemade applesauce. YUM!
This recipe was easy, didn’t call for sugar (it uses honey instead) and makes your whole house smell amazing.
6 fuji apples, peeled, cored and quartered
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup unfiltered apple juice
2 tablespoons butter
3 table spoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a medium sauce pan, mix together apples, lemon juice, apple juice, butter, honey, and cinnamon. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until apples are soft.
- mash with a potato masher* to achieve desired consistency. Serve warm or chilled. May be stored in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
*I used my immersion blender
The recipe only makes two cups, which in my book isn’t enough. I would definitely recommend doubling it, especially if you want to use some of the applesauce to make apple butter!
