I forgot how good homemade apple sauce is until I made a batch today! Oh my goodness so delicious and fantastically nutritious! Plus it is SUPER easy. I decided to embark on this journey because I had 4 over ripe apples left from this weeks CSA box. No one was eating them and I didn't want them to go to waste so tada - Apple sauce!
Apples - cored and diced (I leave the skin on for added nutrients and fiber)
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 a Lemon - juiced
In a saucepan, combine apples, water, lemon juice and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft.
I then poured it in the cleaned applesauce jar from the store bought applesauce ;)
