Applesauce was something that I grew up enjoying, but only out of small, plastic containers. As I grew older, I stopped enjoying the treat, and assumed I didn’t like it anymore. Heather encouraged me for almost a year to try her homemade applesauce, but I always turned it down saying I wasn’t “an applesauce person.” That was stupid on my part.
Thankfully, last autumn, she made it anyway. This applesauce is delicious, and I look forward to the times when she cooks it up at home. Better yet, it’s really easy. I hope you’ll take the time to make it as well; it’s a delicious homemade treat that’s way better than the stuff that’s pre-packaged in plastic.
5 large granny smith apples
3 Tbsp water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 pinches nutmeg (approx. 1/16 tsp)
1 pinch ground clove
Chop apples into eighths, removing core and seeds.
Add to a stock pot with water, and top with spices.
Heat covered on medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Heat for an additional 10 minutes, covered.
Stir well, and let it simmer for a final 10 minutes on low heat, covered.
Allow to cool, and serve.
