So today I am making some serious Applesauce to have for the kids this winter. I have a great recipe that I found a few years back on an internet cooking site. I am just so excited to share it with you all...
First you need Apples :-) The original recipe calls for 4 apples but I always make big batches of sauce and put it in jars. Today I am using about 9 medium sized "honey Crisp" Apples straight from the farms just up the road from our house.
You will need to have something to peel the apples and a knife to cut them. I use a peeler and an apple corer then use the knife to cut.
Peel the apples. make sure all the peelings are off of the fruit.
Core the apple so it's easier to cut. (you can omit this step if you want)
Cut the apples into small pieces.
Then Dump the cut apples into a crockpot to cook.
now you need the other ingredients...
You will need 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of Sugar, 1 tsp. Cinnamon, and a Sprinkle of Nutmeg.
Pour the water into the crock.
Then pour in the sugar.
Now add the Cinnamon and Nutmeg.
Now stir it all up and let it cook on HI for 3-4 hours.
Then sit back and enjoy the smell that fills your house... I know we will.
