I've been wanting to make homemade applesauce for SO long. My grandma used to make this all the time--it was one of my favorite things! She supposedly never had a recipe for it, so I tried my best to come up with something I thought might work :)
It doesn't really look anything like hers--hmmm...but it's ok :) I can keep trying. There is nothing wrong with this applesauce--it actually tastes pretty good! But, when you're expecting your grandma's, it's slightly disappointing :( I don't know if I'll ever be able to recreate hers, but I'm going to keep trying!
If you are looking for a good homemade applesauce though, this recipe works great!
-4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
-3/4 c. water
-1/4 c. sugar
-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Combine apples, water, sugar and cinnamon in a medium saucepan.
Cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, or until apples are soft. Let cool and then mash with a potato masher or a fork.
