I feel ashamed that I am even posting this as a recipe because there really isn’t anything to it! However, I try and make some every year around apple season. I don’t get complicated with it, so I thought it was worth telling you guys just how easy it can be! I use whatever variety of apples are available when picking occurs. I always use organic apples because I leave the skin on, and apples are one of the most heavily sprayed crops. I like chunky applesauce when I eat because I like more texture. If you want smooth applesauce, you will have to peel them. I also don’t add any sugar…just some cinnamon!
As many apples cored and chopped as will fit in my dutch oven (10 maybe)
spoonful of cinnamon
splash of water
After taking the cores out of your apples and roughly chopping them, place them in a dutch oven or stockpot on the stove. Sprinkle in some cinnamon and add a splash of water to the pot. Place on medium high until the apples start cooking and then turn down to a simmer. Simmer until they are mashable. I use a wooden spoon to mash them up and then add it to jars for storage!
