I have such fond memories of my mom making applesauce my entire life.
I even remember her hiding our vitamins in the applesauce.
But most of all, I just love that she actually made it homemade.
It is so easy and much cheaper than buying it in the store.
And it really is much more tasty. You can mix up different apples & spices.
Plus, you get to eat it warm when it's finished.
No recipe or measurements needed.
Just "what mom does"
a variety of apples
no need for peeling [just wash] Put the apples in a pot and cover with water
Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 35-45 minutes on low.
Use a food mill to process the apples
sugar and spice & everything nice.
add your favorite spices to taste*; cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves.
add granulated sugar or brown sugar to taste*
or enjoy it plain.
*to taste = add sugar or spices for however sweet or spicy you prefer it.
This will last about a week or so in the refrigerator
and can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
& that's if it lasts THAT long!
