Recipe: Applesauce

by Stacey Graham

Mmmmm, there’s nothing better than fresh homemade applesauce.  Families are so used to buying jarred prepared applesauce that most of us have no idea how easy it is to make lovely chunky sauce ourselves with only a few ingredients.  This recipe calls for only 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, you can bet the store-bought version would make your dentist cringe.  Try it today for your little ones on top of fluffy pancakes or hot as a great side dish.

4 McIntosh apples, chunked
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cups all natural apple juice or fresh cider
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, a few pinches
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated or a few pinches ground

Place chunked apples, brown sugar, juice or cider, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium pot over medium-high heat and let cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and reducing heat to medium when mixture comes to a boil.  Stir hot, chunky applesauce to break up cooked apples and remove from heat.
