Applesauce is one of my favorite breakfasts with a side of toast and a cup of tea. Yes, that is one of my heavens. Anyways about 2 weeks back I started making apple sauce from scratch this is my current recipe. It will probably evolve. :)
- 6-8 lbs of apples
- 3 pieces of lemon peel
- 2 cups of water
- Ground cinnamon
Wash, peel, core, and slice all the apples. Place them in a fairly large pot and add the two cups of water, lemon peel, & cinnamon. Turn the stove on med-high heat and wait for the water to gently boil. Mix the apples as they cook so they won’t stick or burn. Once the everything is boiling, turn the heat down to medium and let the apples simmer for approximately 30 minutes.
Once the apples look pretty tender, you can either a) mash them with a potato masher to desired consistency, or b) get out your Bamix mixer and mash up the apples with the mashing blade. I love my Bamix. Moving on! I like my applesauce a little chunky. You can make your applesauce as smooth or chunky as you wish. Good luck & enjoy!
